The meeting, an initiative of the consuls themselves, was the first to be held under the auspices of the country’s embassies.  It would also provide constructive input into the bi-annual consuls’ conferences, the next one being planned for October.

A total of seven consuls – Belgium, Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain (2) and Ukraine – attended the meeting, whereas the others from Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Montenegro, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia could not attend, mostly for reasons beyond their control.
