A conference on inter-parliamentary dialogue to further promote the European integration of the Western Balkans was organised on Friday 20 October in Skopje by the PACE Inter-parliamentary Co-operation and Project Support Division, the PACE Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy, and the Assembly of the Republic of North Macedonia.

This regional event provided parliamentarians from the region with a broad platform for co-operation and dialogue to discuss challenges they face and good practices towards European integration.

In a 2022 resolution on “Supporting a European perspective for the Western Balkans”, the Parliamentary Assembly called for a new impetus to be given to the European Union enlargement process.

The conference was opened by the President of the Assembly of the Republic of North Macedonia, the PACE President, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of North Macedonia for European Affairs, and the Chairperson of the PACE Committee on Political Affairs.
