|The IEMed assumes the Secretariat of EuroMeSCo|
Barcelona’s place as a focus of ideas and promotion of Euro-Mediterranean policy and the Union for the Mediterranean has been reasserted with the designation of the IEMed as Secretariat of the EuroMeSCo network.
EuroMeSCo has approved the establishment of its Secretariat in Barcelona, given its Mediterranean centrality and the ambitious work plan that the IEMed can develop in the two years of its mandate.
The agreement was adopted on 19th November in Barcelona in the general assembly of the network, which on 17th and 18th held its annual conference in the city under the title “Barcelona+15: New Paths of Cooperation Across the Mediterranean”. (Read also the Euromesco Newsletter January 2011)
