"Cooperation in the field of transport connectivity is imposed as an imperative, while the importance of coordinated development of the transport network in the region is also confirmed by the recent establishment of the Transport Community for the Western Balkans. With the completion of the planned infrastructure projects, the aspect of attracting foreign direct investments will gain its full intensity and importance for increasing the competitiveness of the region's economies. This is also the reason why the Connection Agenda is high on the list of priorities of the Berlin Process", is the message of Professor Velibor Peulić, who represented our University at this meeting.
