The Euro-Mediterranean Summit of Economic and Social Councils and Similar Institutions is taking place on 22-23 October 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. It aims at promoting greater understanding of the main issues affecting organised civil society in the Euromed region and at discussing the common challenges they face. This year, the exchange will focus on digitalisation and SMEs in the Mediterranean region.
The event brings together some 120 participants from a range of economic and social councils, or similar institutions, representatives of employers, trade unions, other economic and social interests groups and NGOs from countries which are members of the Union for the Mediterranean.
The meeting will conclude with the adoption of recommendations that will be sent to the political authorities of the countries involved in the Euromed Ministerial Summits as civil society’s contribution to their work, and disseminated widely amongst civil society organisations in the region.
The 2019 Euro-Mediterranean Summit is co-organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and The Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UFM) and co-financed by the European Commission.
