The Office for Economic Cooperation in the Mediterranean and the East (OCEMO) is pleased to announce that, for the fifth consecutive time, itIMG_5754 will be coordinating one of the emblematic events of Euro- Mediterranean cooperation: the 10th Mediterranean Economic Week. The point of this partner-based initiative is to promote the area and its economic stakeholders, all the while encouraging and facilitating meetings and debates with all of the economic partners of the countries from around the Mediterranean.

The theme of this year is: “Digital technology, for a connected Mediterranean”.

The event will take place from Wednesday the 2nd to Saturday the 5th of November 2016 at the Villa Méditerranée in Marseille.
This shall be the opportunity to bring to light the current issues and the latest evolutions being dealt with in the digital domain, to inspire initiatives which are already showing promise in other areas, to promote the area and what it has to offer, and to allow local and international economic stakeholders to develop their business networks. Three main dimensions of this theme have already been identified:
– Digital technology, economic sector and service tool for other sectors
– Digital technology, an answer to current social challenges
– Marseille and the Mediterranean: hub of Euro-African exchange
