The document has been developed through the help of the “To Do Club” and with the strong support of CIPE (Center for International Private Enterprises).

The panel was moderated by Mr. Sandros Charalampopoulos, Advisory Board Member of the EBA. The “Black Sea Connectivity Talks” were based on the EU’s Economic and Investment Plan for Georgia, revolving around transport, digital and environment related issues.
