Policy responses for an EU-MENA shared future

The high level workshop, which is the third edition of its kind under this partnership, will take place in Italy on 11th and 12th October 2018. This year we are focusing on the core theme of “Policy Responses for an EU-MENA shared future”, analysed from an economic angle.
