The forum in the Adriatic city brought together the heads of state of Bulgaria, Lithuania, Poland, Slovenia, Hungary and Croatia, as well as government officials from Austria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Romania and Slovakia.
New effective ways of cooperation must be sought in energy, transport, digital communications and trade, if the countries on the North-South axis want to grow into a stable and prosperous region and have a strong voice in the EU, Plevneliev has added.
