Furthermore, in the follow-up meeting that was held yesterday, 12 March 2013 representatives of ICPE and SDBP have already agreed on concrete projects to participate in and exchange of expertise, among which the ICPE International Conference on Economic Diplomacy to be held this June, SDBP Cafés International, the Africa Day, Green Will project as well as to join efforts in applying for the EU projects. Importantly, apart from joining efforts between ICPE and SDBP, strong synergies are indicated with other partners and network members of both organisations that consequently lead to significant increase of added-value and benefits to members and networks of both organisations.
