      In his remarks, Dr. Akhlaqi underlined the ECO’s activities and engagements that the Organization made in special consideration of the COVID-19. He informed about several post-pandemic initiatives taken by the ECO Secretariat to facilitate the Member States and the smooth intra-regional movement of essentially required supplies, particularly medicines and food stuff. He added that soon after the outbreak of the Corona virus the ECO Secretariat released a Preliminary Assessment Report concerning the potential impacts of COVID-19 on the economy of the ECO Region.

      The panel discussion, inter alia, focused on three priority areas, i.e., climate change and green recovery, digital transformation, and SMEs Recovery and entrepreneurship.
