In their meeting with senior government officials in Kosovo and Serbia, the delegation will focus on ways to implement projects agreed by their leaders on September 4, 2020, in the White House.

They will also travel to Greece, with the aim of advancing strategic investments to diversify Greece’s energy supply.
A last stop will be Jerusalem, Israel, where they will assess opportunities for investment in the region to enhance stability and economic cooperation in the Middle East.
