    Descriptive info: Many countries, especially in the south of Europe, are forced to re-engineer their economy to be able to keep up with international competition.. Greece has been in the epicentre of the European crisis and has caused euro-scepticism, sometimes with exaggeration.. Greek economy is an example of the need to change course, to take drastic measures and to implement structural reforms in order to find a way to recovery.. We shall not forget, though, that Europe faces its own critical challenge to defend euro against the markets and to foster its unity and solidarity.. Despite recession and turmoil, Black Sea and Caspian remain a vital part of the world at the crossroads of East and West.. From economic perspective, the region presents high potentials for growth with unsaturated markets of more than 450 million consumers.. Our region is not only rich in energy resources, it provides trade and investment opportunities in many other sectors as well.. However, most of our companies have not fully explored the potential of the region, either because of lack of business intelligence or because of various obstacles they face when trying to access markets, or because they cannot identify proper partners.. The same applies for our countries, although they have complementary economies they do not perform to full potential, they can reach higher trade and investment volumes among them or with the Europe Union.. Economic nationalism is outdated, partnerships based on common interests and principles, open and liberalized markets are the key.. I believe creating UBCCE has been a wise initiative, it was necessary to unite representative Federations of the private sector from Black Sea and the Caspian.. It is a challenge to gather under one umbrella with a united voice the real economic players  ...   will offer training and knowledge to many more beneficiaries.. But UBCCE’s future is even more challenging.. We need to have a concrete strategy, a clear roadmap, a meaningful work program which offers real-value services to those concerned.. The way will not be full of roses.. We must stay united, committed to our goals and focused to our activities.. It is unfortunate that some member federations seem to have lost interest in our activities or to be somehow distant.. Mobilising the less participative members to engage in our meetings and projects is not easy.. I sincerely hope that they will become more sensible on UBCCE and will engage in our collective work to bear fruits on their behalf as organizations and for the benefits of their member companies.. The Presidency is ready to discuss any constructive suggestions which may provide added value and may direct our efforts to meet the requirements and desires of all.. Finally, among other challenges ahead of us, New Year started with a significant internal development which is the resignation of the Secretary General, Mr.. Murat Zöngür, to follow a new career in the front line of a private sector.. Murat has been with UBCCE since day one of its establishment and has been the driving force of the Union.. He was worked with particular devotion and put all his efforts to build UBCCE profile and capacity.. We are all grateful to him for his valuable services and on behalf of all I wish him every success in his new endeavours.. I entrust his successor, Ms.. Seda Köknel Çatalkaya, will continue in the same track and with fresh and innovative ideas and actions will take our Union further to reach a new era.. Dr.. Athanase Lavidas..
