In this light, our delegation participated actively in the joint First Conference on Black Sea Ring Highway and the Fourth Conference on Silk Road in Istanbul in the period from 14th to 16th May 2007.
The Conference in Istanbul was held in a moment when Turkey gained chairmanship-in-office of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC), and when the world expresses its increased interest in Black Sea region.
The Memorandum of Understanding between the International Road Federation (IRF) and the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) with the purpose of promoting the Black Sea Ring Highway which was signed in November 2005 in Antalya was a basis for this joint conference.
The special contribution of this Conference is a regional development, i.e. connection between the Central Asia region and Black Sea region, as evidenced by the Declaration adopted at that Conference.

By construction of the branch Xc and completion of motorway from Burgas via Sofia to the border with the Republic of Serbia the connection with the Black Sea Ring and countries of Black Sea region are being made.
