This year’s SEEED introduces some new elements in the structure of the conference in an effort to diversify yet enrich its content. Hence, an ambassador’s forum has been organised and will take place at the very start of the event. The aim being that with the help of experienced and high level diplomats the region’s rather complex political and economic issues can be examined by bringing into the picture a much neeed international perspective. HE the British Ambassador, Mr. Matthew Lodge, the Economic Councelor of the USA Embassy in Athens Mr. Erik Holmgren and Mr. Michael Christides, Ambassador a. h and former Secretary General of BSEC PERMIS will take part in the Ambassadors Forum which will be chaired by Mr. John Roberts, energy security specialist and the SEEED rapporteur.

Another new element which has been incorporated in the year’s event is the presentation of Country Reports by representatives from each of the 14 countries in the region, namely: Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Turkey. This comprehensive review of the energy situation in the countries of the region comes to augment the otherwise rich content of this year’s conference.
