Relations with the Euromed region are one of our priorities. Our work covers a wide variety of areas such as democratic transition, youth employment, sustainable development, mobility and immigration, trade, renewable energy and business development.

The Economic and Social Committee has been working on these issues since 1995. Following the events of the Arab Spring in 2010, we have adjusted our objectives accordingly, aiming to:

  • Support civil society organisations in countries undergoing transition. Such support is targeted, in particular, at trade unions, employers’ organisations, as well as women’s, youth, and farmers’ associations.
  • Maintain bilateral relations with the national Economic and Social Councils in the region, and create these councils in countries which do not have them.
  • Issue opinions and common reports on the key policy challenges facing the region.
  • Hold regular meetings with European institutions to discuss the policies concerning civil society across the region.
  • Organise an annual summit for Economic and Social Councils and similar institutions during which key policy recommendations on the region’s main challenges will be put to policy-makers from national governments and the EU.
