Rome, Italy - November 21st-23rd, 2018
Rome, 21 November 2018. MED – MEDITERRANEAN DIALOGUES is the annual high-level initiative promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and ISPI in Rome. The event aims at drafting a “positive agenda” for the Mediterranean by stimulating debate and promoting new ideas, rethinking traditional approaches and addressing shared challenges at both the regional and the international level. Rome MED builds upon four pillars: Shared Prosperity, Shared Security, Migration, and Civil Society and Culture.
"Debates on these topics are intended to complement analyses of current challenges with new ideas and suggestions to scale-up economic cooperation, overcome regional rivalries and conflicts, and ensure that adequate incentives for sustainable development are set in motion. Diana Battaggia, Head of UNIDO ITPO Italy, says - we are committed to many projects and the one about MENA region is one of them. Promote inverstiments and technology tranfer in that area is a key strategic action to contribute a real sustainable development for all of us. Sdg9, the one more strictly connected to UNIDO's mandate, is clear anche simple: promote sustainable industrialization for a global development. It's what we do partecipating in high level conferences such as MED2018".
