Who we are

Center for Economic Diplomacy (CED) is designed to enhance economic diplomacy researches and provide the triangle bridge between governments, businesses, and universities. It represents the focal point for all economic diplomacy activities and consists of more than 50 professionals in the field. The professional staff of the Center has all gained many international experiences in the academic professorship, the diplomatic community, and the business world on all seven continents. That provides us coverage of the full spectrum of economic diplomacy issues.

CED is the first independent, non-political, non-for-profit organization in Southern Eastern Europe focusing on economic diplomacy and does not owe allegiance to any political party. CED’s “thinknet” structure also actively encourages diversity of opinion and independents thought in its network. The result of our researches and operations reflects state-of-the-art thinking from a range of perspectives.
