Adriatic & Ionian Council (AIC)

The AII Council of Ministers is the decision making body of the Adriatic & Ionian Initiative. It meets once a year at the level of Ministers of Foreign Affairs. The AIC adopts Declarations endorsing the work done during annual presidency and setting objectives and strategy for the future period of cooperation. The Declarations adopted since the foundation of the AII (May 2000) are enclosed.

Over the last few years, considering the commitment of coordinating the activities of the AII with those of the “EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region” (EUSAIR) and with the aim to avoid duplication and exploit synergies, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the eight countries decided to merge the political level of the two intergovernmental exercises and for the first time under the Croatian Chairmanship, in May 2016 a double hat AII/EUSAIR Meeting of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs was held in Dubrovnik.AIC Rules of Procedures
