The Commission organized a first edition of “EU Med means business– Shaping the future of entrepreneurship in the South” on 21-22 May in Brussels with parallel events in Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan and Morocco, where entrepreneurs, economic leaders and drivers of socioeconomic change from Europe’s Southern Neighborhood have set out their most urgent priorities for policy makers in the region and in the EU, to overcome barriers to higher economic growth and job creation.
The event focused on how to unleash the potential of the private sector and attract more foreign and domestic investment.
The main instrument to implement these actions is the European Neighborhood Instrument.
