Along with the main stakeholders of the local and regional scene (journalists, representatives of local and national authorities, businessmen and beneficiaries of projects financed with European funds), they discussed relevant topics for the Calafat-Vidin area , but also for the whole South West Oltenia region, such as:
- The impact of the Calafat bridge on local economy – 3 years after its official opening;

This event was an excellent networking opportunity for the ACZ team present on-site, but also a chance to learn about the latest news in European Development policy and strategy for 2014-2020.
