Mediterranean Leader’s Economic Week

22/11 - 24/11


About the event:

The Mediterranean is experiencing great social, political and economic shifts, resulting in commercial regional uncertainty. These changes present an opportunity for countries on both sides of the Mediterranean basin to strengthen and improve cross-border cooperation. In particular, the region needs to work towards boosting competiveness while seizing the regional diversity the Mediterranean has to offer, including its vast social fabric and natural resources.

Despite its interconnected and dynamic history, the Mediterranean is today a highly fragmented region. It suffers from one of the sharpest GDP divides per capita in the world, as well as uneven trade models. In order to tap into the Mediterranean’s socio-economic potential, the business community should look towards furthering competitiveness through greater economic sustainability, improved resource management in agricultural and environmental sectors, and improved infrastructure.
