Senator Francesco Amoruso, President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean today (24 June 2014) inaugurated the Conference “EURO-MED - BUILDING A SOUND & COMMON ENERGY FUTURE”, being held at the Chamber of Deputies of the Italian Parliament in Rome.

The event is being organized by the Mediterranean Observatory on Energy (OME), in collaboration with PAM and under the auspices of the Representation of the European Commission in Italy.

Topics ranging from the European Commission’s perspective on energy cooperation in the Mediterranean to energy security, socio-economic development, market structure and business models, will be discussed.

The Conference will also be addressed by Sen. Lhou Lmarbouh,  PAM Vice President and President of the PAM 2nd Standing Committee. Also participating is Eng. Alessando Ortis, Co-Chair of the PAM Panel on Trade and Investments in the Mediterranean.

In his introductory speech, Sen. Amoruso underscored the need for a more connected Mediterranean, which is one of the PAM main objectives for the energy sector. In order to promote this idea, PAM is committed to work in synergy with the Association of Mediterranean Regulators for Electricity and Gas (MEDREG),  the Association of the Mediterranean Transport System Operators (Med-TSO), OME, financial institutions such as the EBRD, and other political and government organizations such as the Union for the Mediterranean.

“In order to create the right conditions for the implementation of the Mediterranean Energy Community, a collective effort is absolutely imperative”, Sen. Amoruso said. To this effect he reaffirmed the need for a harmonized national legislative framework, better interconnectivity among countries, and better coordination and coherence of the current wide range of initiatives in this sector.//
