Launch of the 1st Progress Report on Euro-Mediterranean Regional Integration

The UfM is holding an online launch event to present the first edition of the UfM Progress Report on Regional Integration, prepared by the OECD.
The Report identifies major trends and assess progress achieved in five domains of regional integration: trade, finance, infrastructure, movement of people, and research and higher education. It presents key findings and policy recommendations for each of these domains, based on specific performance indicators that can be monitored over time.
This event will be the first in a series of events dedicated by the UfM to regional integration, and the key recommendations will be used to inform future actions to accelerate and consolidate integration efforts in the UfM region across the five domains.
