Share this article

This year is a special one for the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) as we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of its founding in 1992!

Established in Istanbul as a unique and promising platform for multilateral economic cooperation, with the signing of the Istanbul Summit Declaration and the Bosphorus Statement by the Heads of State and Government, BSEC is today the oldest fully fledged Organization in the geostrategic region of the wider Black Sea.

Throughout its three decades of existence and following the establishment of its Permanent International Secretariat (PERMIS) in Istanbul, it has asserted itself as a prominent actor in promoting peace, stability and prosperity, encouraging friendly and good-neighbourly relations in the Black Sea area. It continues to serve as an important forum for cooperation in a wide range of domains to the benefit of its 13 member states, while broadly collaborating with other regional organisations on various projects of common interest.

To mark BSEC’s 30th anniversary, various events will take place throughout 2022, adding new achievements and memories to the many years to come of the Organization. In this context, BSEC looks forward to celebrating together with its member states, related bodies, observers and sectoral partners through the organisation of various activities that will give greater visibility to the Organization, its past achievements and the potential that lies ahead.

For further details, you are kindly invited to follow the official website of the Organization at and the BSEC social media accounts, which can be reached through the website.

Last but not least, the PERMIS also wishes on this occasion to acknowledge past and present BSEC staff members who have whole-heartedly contributed to the well-functioning and success of the Organization since its inception.

As we celebrate this milestone, we look forward to many more anniversaries to come!
