Speech of Prof. Eden Mamut, BSUN Secretary General


Distinguished Mr. Asaf Hajiyev, PABSEC Secretary General,
Your Excellency Ambassador Michael Christides, BSEC PERMIS Secretary General
Excellences, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Allow me to express my most gratitude for the invitation to join this meeting which has been organized on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the PABSEC.  This year is an important jubilee for PABSEC which is marking an important achievement in a very difficult period, with complex and complicated challenges, to keep the representatives of the 12 Parliaments of the region still together. They may have different opinions, different interests but sitting together and listening each other there is still a chance for solutions.  This achievement was possible also due to the contribution of the specialized units in organizing, facilitating and coordinating the activities of such a regional Assembly. In any kind of organization, the secretariat is by definition the “hidden part of the iceberg” that is planning, allocating the required resources, structuring the logistics, coordinating and dynamically adjusting the needs for properly running of the activities. And this is not only common sense, it has been demonstrated scientifically by the Constructal Theory that was proposed by a Romanian origin scientist, prof. Adrian Bejan from the Duke University in the USA. The constructal law is the law of physics that accounts for the phenomenon of evolution (configuration, forms of organization, design shapes) throughout nature, inanimate flow systems and animate systems together. According to the Constructal Law, “For a finite-size system to persist in time (to live), it must evolve in such a way that it provides easier access to the imposed currents (processes) that flow through it.” (Adrian Bejan, 1996).
