Invest in Med project
The Invest in Med programme aims at developing sustainable trade relationships, investments and enterprise partnerships between the two rims of the Mediterranean. Funded at 75% by the European Union over the 2008-2011 period, it is implemented by the MedAlliance consortium, led by ANIMA.
MedAlliance gathers economic development organisations (ANIMA, leader of the programme), CCIs (ASCAME, EUROCHAMBRES), and business federations (BUSINESSMED). The members of these networks, as well as their special partners (UNIDO, GTZ, EPA Euroméditerranée, etc.), gather a thousand of economic actors - mobilised through pilot initiatives centered on key Mediterranean promising niches. Each year, a hundred operations associate the 27 countries of the European Union and 9 Mediterranean partner countries: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Authority, Syria and Tunisia.
They are divided along the following lines: Networking (BtoB events, Business Representative Organisations matchmaking, conferences); Assistance (support missions and short/long term staff exchanges); Training (workshops); Documentation (guide books, economic intelligence, reports). Other major issues addressed by the program relate to young and women entrepreneurs, Diasporas, micro-enterprises, franchising and leasing, public-private partnerships and access to financing.
