Enver Yılmaz, a deputy from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party), has become the vice president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (PABSEC).
Albania took over rotating presidency of PABSEC from Ukraine at a meeting held in Kiev on Friday as the Albanian parliament speaker Jozefina Topalli became the new president of PABSEC.
Established on Feb. 26, 1993 as a parliamentary dimension of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC), the PABSEC has proved to be an effective forum for inter-parliamentary dialogue in the Black Sea region. With a membership of 76 parliamentarians representing the national parliaments of the 12 BSEC member states, the main objective of the PABSEC is to provide assistance to the national parliaments in enacting the laws that are necessary for the implementation of the projects elaborated as part of the BSEC organization and to establish the legislative foundation for successful multilateral economic, political and cultural cooperation in the region.
