In addition, 100 selected and individually invited leaders will, together with guests from international institutions, try to reach high-quality answers to major problems, such as unemployment, and whether it can be resolved at the regional level, and if talks about regional priorities with political leaders of the countries of the region can be held in an open manner, without mutual accusations for past failures.
