12 November 2020. The UfM and the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) will host the UfM Trade and Investment Forum: Creating Opportunities for Jobs in Times of COVID-19 on 2 November 2020.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has led to enormous economic disruptions and unemployment, a future shortening of supply chains might also present new opportunities for the Mediterranean and EU-Africa integration. The forum will bring together policy-makers and representatives from the private sector, civil society and academia to discuss the importance and opportunities of trade and investment promotion for jobs and economic development in the Mediterranean region.
Due to travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic this event will be held digitally. Further details of the event will be communicated at a later date.
