The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) will discuss and define the role of civil society organisations in the EU and the Mediterranean region, during its 460th plenary session on 17 and 18 February in Brussels.
A press release said the several ESC presidents from Euromed countries visiting the EESC would contribute their views and suggestions for incorporating civil society in the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM). The debate will witness interventions by External Relations section president, Filip Hamro-Drotz and An Le Nouail Marlière, Euromed Follow-Up Committee President.
The Session agenda will also include specific opinions on this topic, such as agriculture in Euromed and EU-Moroccan relations. Another opinion on the agenda sets out arrangements for information storing and sharing in order to effectively combat VAT fraud.
