Sources near Euronews Albania have confirmed that the new name of the so-called Balkan mini-Schengen will be “Open Balkan”.

The argument behind the new name is to provide other countries in the region the opportunity to join the initiative.

During the forum, President Vucic said that from January 1, 2023, there will no longer be any borders between Albania, North Macedonia, and Serbia.

Euronews Albania correspondent Benjamin Arifi reported earlier during the forum that the leaders were expected to give a new name to their joint initiative, which would have most likely been an economic term.

The three Western Balkan leaders are also expected to sign three agreements:

  • Creating a common labor market
  • Liberalization of the movement of goods, not an entire removal of customs, but introducing major facilitations
  • Joint assistance in cases of natural catastrophe
