FEMISE has recently launched its 2019 Euro-Med report which focuses on the private sector in Mediterranean countries.It was presented to the participants of the think tank’s annual conference on June 13th.
How have the Mediterranean countries evolved since the launch of the Barcelona Process? Why has growth fallen short of expectations? What role can Central Banks play in making the private sector more dynamic and in attracting more foreign investment? How can public authorities contribute to the development of social entrepreneurship in order to reduce exclusion?
This report, prepared by Institut de la Méditerranée, attempts to answer these questions through 4 chapters: the first presents the observed dynamics in Mediterranean countries over the past 20 years; the second attempts to analyse the main reasons for the lack of growth; the third focuses on the role of Central Banks in improving the business environment and the attractiveness of foreign investment. The fourth and final chapter focuses on social entrepreneurship.
