FIEC is informing Member Federations about key aspects of the EU institutions’ activity with regard to Southern Mediterranean partner countries, in particular in the context of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).

FIEC is informing Member Federations about key aspects of the EU institutions’ activity with regard to Southern Mediterranean partner countries, in particular in the context of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).

Why FIEC is dealing with this topic
The policy of the European Union towards the Southern Mediterranean countries aims at encouraging political and economic reforms in each individual country and at enhancing cooperation among the countries of the region and with the European Union. Relations with Southern Mediterranean countries are crucially important. The ENP guides these relationships, trying to support individual countries in aspects where the European Union can provide a specific and positive contribution.

Another field of attention for the MEDA Vice-Presidency is the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), an intergovernmental organisation bringing together EU Member States and 15 countries from the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean. It is a permanent structure dedicated to strengthening dialogue, cooperation and exchange of projects ideas. Six strategic priority areas have been identified: business development and employment, social and civil affairs, higher education and research, transport and urban development, water and environment, and energy and climate action.

It is also remarkable to note that the EU and the UfM are paying attention to the impact of Covid-19 crisis in these neighbouring countries and are proposing actions, contributing to the global efforts, to combat the pandemic and limit the economic fallout.

Actions
MEDA Newsletters are available periodically on the FIEC intranet for the Member Federations, containing relevant and updated information mainly from the EU Commission, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Union for the Mediterranean.
