The Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) Foreign Ministers’ meeting will take place in Thessaloniki on Friday, chaired by Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas. The meeting is the last official event held within the framework of the Greek BSEC Chairmanship, launched on June 1, 2010 under the theme “Black Sea Turns Green”.

Droutsas will open the meeting and at noon, before hosting a reception in honor of the participants. Deputy FM for economic diplomacy issues Spyros Kouvelis will also address the meeting.

A joint statement signed by all BSEC foreign ministers will recognize the Black Sea region as vulnerable and sensitive to the climate change, underlining that all member-states agree to undertake a joint effort putting an emphasis on the sustainable development plans and the prevention of natural disasters, while promoting innovative and green entrepreneurship.

Greece will submit the statement to the UN Climate Conference in Mexico next month on behalf of BSEC and its members.

The Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) will host a business forum on the sidelines of the ministerial meeting to focus on the different aspects of "green development" and entrepreneurship.
