He extended his gratitude to Mr. Charbel Rizk and his team for the excellent organization of the seminar and special thanks to the Ramsar and MedWet representatives. He pointed out that this seminar provided the opportunity to exchange experience and assess the work that is still needed to protect the Mediterranean wetlands. He also highlighted the spirit of cooperation and frank exchange that prevailed and pointed out that bringing northern and southern Mediterranean countries around one table was most inspiring and effective in fostering national mobilization and regional networking.
