PAM at the 10th FEMIP Conference to be held in Tunisia
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM) will participate and address the upcoming 10th FEMIP Conference (Tunis, 8 March 2012) dealing with Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the Mediterranean and their future role in the new regional scenario.
The Conference entitled Mediterranean SMEs: Ready to break new  ground, is organized by the European Investment Bank (EIB)  in cooperation with the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation of the Republic of Tunisia and the Agency of the Milan (Italy) Chamber of Commerce for the development of international business.
PAM will be representing the parliamentary dimension in the process of economic integration and growth, and job creation in the region, being itself a platform gathering major stakeholders, such as financial and banking institutions, representatives of the public and private sectors and academics. Through its Panel on External Trade and Investments in the Mediterranean, PAM is this year focusing on unemployment and job creation as a matter of priority in consideration of the current political and economic situation in the Mediterranean region and of the need to facilitate access to the international market by SMEs and their own consortia.
The PAM Panel acts as a comprehensive coherent group with the purpose of addressing common challenges, identifying obstacles and proposing concrete actions in support of trade and the establishment of a Free Trade Area in the region, in promoting Small and Medium Enterprises, in facilitating investments and finance and stimulating job creation. These priority areas are tackled through a number of Sectoral Groups dedicated to North-South and South-South Trade Facilitation, Food Security through support to regional agro-industry, Vocational Training and Research, Transport and Infrastructure, Tourism and Cultural Heritage, Finance and Investments, Water and Energy.
