APPLICATIO was commissioned by DIHK Service GmbH to plan and implement a virtual project planning workshop. Within the framework of the Chamber and Association Partnership Project (KVP WB 6) in the Western Balkans (six countries) APPLICATIO will moderate an annual review and planning workshop for the year 2021 and bring all project partners together virtually on two days.
The workshop will bring together all participating chambers of the region to develop an operation plan for the year 2021. Due to the COVD-19 pandemic, this can only be done virtually and not in presence.
The project between the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) and the Chambers of Commerce from Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Northern Macedonia and Serbia started on 1 September 2019. The aim of the project is to support the Chambers of the Western Balkans in driving forward the implementation of the "Regional Economic Area" initiative and to contribute to the improvement of national framework conditions, especially in the areas of trade, investment, digitisation and mobility. The project activities focus on strengthening the organisational capacity of Western Balkan chambers, improving networking with the Chamber Investment Forum (CIF), strengthening the chambers' lobbying activities and developing services for SMEs.
