Advocacy

Member participation in the Balkan Economic Forum (BEF) contributes to the development of recommended policies and the framing of legislative issues designed to stimulate economic growth which guide the BEF advocacy services to advance the mission of the organisation. In furtherance of this mission, the Balkan Economic Forum is registered in the European Union Transparency Register as an authorised lobbyist at the European Parliament and the European Commission.

BEF advocacy at regional and European Union (EU) levels with Balkan government officials, EU Member States, European Commission officials, Members of the European Parliament and other Euro-Atlantic institution officials serves to strengthen the influence of BEF members in pubic policy and legislative affairs in order to create investment opportunities, sustainable employment, regional cooperation and socio-economic development.
