Nine representatives of the partner organizations attended the coordination meeting. Within two days, the participants had the opportunity to examine in detail the project to draw a schedule for implementation of activities and to set deadlines for achieving the objectives. Representatives from two of the partner organizations took the meeting interactively. They were unable to travel to Yambol at this time of year.
