The general meeting of UBCCE (Association of Entrepreneurs Confederation of the Black and Caspian Seas) appointed Chatalkayan Seda as General Secretary for another three years, ATIB (Azerbaijan-Turkey Businessmen Association) said on Monday.

The general meeting approved an action plan and budget for 2012. The request of the Confederation of Private Employers of Poland (LEWIATAN) to the membership was considered at the meeting, and it was admitted to the UBCCE as an observer.
