Policy Seminar on “Unlocking the Potential of the Private Sector in South Med Countries”

fem-aub-logoFEMISE is pleased to announce that its next Policy Seminar will be on the theme ofUnlocking the Potential of the Private Sector in South Med Countries” and will take place during the 5th of December 2016, in Beirut, Lebanon. The seminar is organised in collaboration with our partners, the Institute of Financial Economics, at the American University of Beirut (AUB).

The objective of this joint FEMISE-AUB policy seminar is to identify the different challenges that the private sector of the South Med countries is facing. From the one hand, the region suffers from large macroeconomic instabilities; and from the other, the sector faces complex administrative procedures and difficult access to finance for SMEs. The seminar will attempt to answer the following key question: “What measures could be taken to unlock the potentials of the private sector in the South Med countries?”. This will be done in three sessions and one roundtable discussion.
