Trans-Mediterranean professional economic networks
Since the Barcelona process was launched in 1995, and often because of it, a large number of initiatives have been set up in civil society, weaving a trans-Mediterranean network of cooperation and solidarity in the economic sector (e.g. audiovisual companies, post offices, electricity transporters, cancer specialists, investment capital professionals, local communities, etc.).
Yet because they are not sufficiently coordinated, these initiatives remain scattered. They do not succeed in creating a dense mesh covering the territory.
In comparison, countries bordering the Baltic Sea, encouraged by the governments of the Council of the Baltic Sea States, link up their ports, transporters, towns and universities.
