News/Events The Secretariat Unstoppable Conference

Japan-WBF agree on priorities ahead

The Western Balkans Fund and representatives of the Japanese Embassy to Albania had today a joint meeting at our Secretariat’s premises.

The Japanese delegation, headed by the Counsellor, Mr. Daisuke Fujimura, and the Western Balkans Fund Executive Director. Dr. Gjergj Murra, had a long and warm conversation focused on the upcoming “Unstoppable” Regional Conference on Women and Leadership.

The Japanese Government is the biggest donor of the Conference and, at the same time, one of the key partners of our governments and the civil society in the Region.

At the meeting, we agreed that full gender equality and access to women in leadership is paramount for the European future of the Western Balkans Region.

On WBF’s behalf, Dr. Murra appreciated the positive impact of Japan on our societies and wished that this already strong relationship be reinforced further in the future.
