On June 6-7, 2004, the Black Sea Trade and Development Bank (BSTDB) will hold its sixth annual meeting of its board of governors and the “Black Sea Business Day” conference in Tirana, Albania. Fatos Nano, the prime minister of Albania, will inaugurate the Black Sea Business Day.
The discussions will concentrate on regional infrastructure development and agro-business, and will also address the issue of mobilising international financial resources for economic development.
Special attention will be paid to the growing number of investment opportunities in Albania. Speakers will include high-level representatives of the Albanian government and of the Black Sea Trade and Development Bank and other international financial institutions, as well as leading regional and international entrepreneurs, donors and investors.
The Black Sea Business Day will be supported by the Union of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Albania, the Albanian Agro-Business Council and the Association of Albanian Banks. The event will offer an excellent opportunity for investors, bankers and businessmen to discuss project and trade financing opportunities in Albania and in the greater Black Sea region.
The BSTDB is an international financial institution established by Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Romania, the Russian Federation, Turkey and Ukraine. The bank supports economic development and regional cooperation by providing financing, guarantees, and equity for projects supporting public and private enterprises in its member countries.
