Description of the Subject: The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (EUROMED) European Union:

The objective of the Union for the Mediterranean (Barcelona Process) is to develop economic integration and democratic reform across sixteen neighbours of the European Union to the south in North Africa and the Middle East.

Members of the Union for the Mediterranean are the twenty-eight European Union member economies, Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Arab Republic of Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Monaco, Montenegro, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Tunisia, and Turkey.

As we can see, all the countries except Montenegro and Israel have Muslim majorities.

The main objective of the partnership agreement is the creation of a deep Euro-Mediterranean Free-Trade Area, which aims at substantially liberalising bilateral trade between both the European Union and the Southern Mediterranean countries and with the Southern Mediterranean countries themselves.

International Trade in products:

  2. The European Union imports from the Southern Mediterranean region: Euros 105 billion
  3. The European Union total foreign trade with the Southern Mediterranean countries was Euros 224 billion - some 10% of the total of the EU international trade
