CEPA Forum Declaration

The CEPA Forum Declaration was a major outcome of this year’s gathering. Featuring Founding Co-signers, who included foreign ministers, representatives, and leaders from twelve countries, it was a bold initiative to reaffirm the strategic importance of the Atlantic relationship at the individual and national levels. On the occasion of the 2019 CEPA Forum, CEPA President Peter B. Doran announced the Declaration as a means of renewing the transatlantic bonds that make our Alliance strong in an era of rising rivalry with China and Russia.
