"The EESC maintains regular contact with economic and social councils in those partner countries that have them and supports their efforts to develop their consultative function vis-à-vis their governments. It is vitally important that governments consult civil society during the process of drafting and implementing policies to guarantee their success. In February 2010, the EESC took the initiative of inviting the presidents of the economic and social councils in the partner countries to participate in a plenary session of the EESC in order to further strengthen cooperation. (...)
The EESC is also cooperating with its counterparts to reinforce dialogue between civil society networks operating in the Euromed region, such as the Union of Mediterranean Confederations of Enterprises (BusinessMed), the Euromed Trade Union Forum and the Euromed social economy network (ESMED). It supports and facilitates discussion between these networks on the prospects for developing social dialogue at Euromed level."
