Promoting Investment in the Mediterranean

By August 22, 2019October 5th, 2020No Comments

The Programme supports efforts to boost the quality and quantity of investment to and within the Mediterranean region. Working in partnership with governments and institutions, it engages in regional and national actions to create more robust and coherent investment policies and strategies, including:

  • modernising investment policies
  • promoting inclusive investment strategies
  • increasing the region’s investment promotion capacities
  • building institutional capacity through peer learning
  • promoting networking between investment promotion agencies
  • enhancing public-private dialogue for more inclusive policy making
  • engaging the business sector responsibly

Programme actions build on well-established international tools and standards such as the OECD’s Policy Framework for Investment and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

The Programme is governed by an Advisory Group co-chaired by the European Commission and the OECD, with the participation of representatives of beneficiary countries, the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean and other key regional partners.
