The EuroMeSCo Annual Conference 2021 “Setting the New Agenda for the Mediterranean in Motion – Shaping Post-Covid Euromed Relations” will be held online on 15 April at 10h30 (Brussels time) and will gather hundreds of participants around the Mediterranean. With this event, EuroMeSCo intends to actively contribute to the reflection over rolling out the new agenda for the Mediterranean, a few weeks after the release of the EU Joint Communication on the Renewed Partnership with the Southern Neighbourhood.
The Acting Director General of DG NEAR, Maciej Popowski, will present the Communication, after which a debate will unfold, structured around short comments by distinguished experts coming from the whole Euro-Mediterranean region.
This event will kick-off a series of country events to be held in the coming months in a few Southern neighbourhood countries. They will offer a platform for further discussions on relevant issues of the Communication, and involve mixed groups of representatives from think tanks, academic institutions, civil society organisations, and business community representatives as well as EU officials.
