The 3rd Meeting of the Budapest Process Working Group on the Silk Routes Region was held together with the 2nd Intergovernmental Meeting of the Project "Fostering Cooperation in the Area of Migration with and in the Silk Routes Region".
Participants from Afghanistan, China, Iran and Pakistan, representatives of 21 further Budapest Process participating states, as well as 12 representatives of international organisations and the civil society, met on 28 - 29 June 2012 to discuss migration and development issues in the Silk Routes Region. The objective of the meeting, which was held in Tbilisi, Georgia, was to take stock on how migration is factored into development in the Silk Routes Region and to discuss migration and development needs. During the meeting, the preliminary findings from the first missions to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the framework of the Silk Routes project were presented and discussed against the background of the first day’s assessments of migration and development issues in the region.
For the first time, a Budapest Process working group meeting was solely focused on migration and development. Participants welcomed this as a very positive development, confirming the Budapest Process as a balanced migration dialogue. The meeting especially highlighted the importance of a partnership approach and the necessity to always look for individual solutions – for each migrant and each country.
