UfM projects presented to members of European Parliament
April 22, 2016
On Monday 18 April 2016, the Secretary General of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), Fathallah Sijilmassi, gave a comprehensive presentation to the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs on the activities and projects promoted by the UfM in 2015, together with an overview of its work programme for the current year.
Mr Sijilmassi also presented the 41 projects labelled by the UfM Member States. “More than ever the magnitude of the regional challenges linked to unemployment, uncontrolled migration and violent extremism call for collective answers and a strengthened regional framework,” a UfM press release quoted Mr Sijilmassi as saying.
