In a fast-changing environment where global trade dynamics are shaping new relations among States, the Mediterranean area is regaining a central role. A comprehensive plan to build new infrastructures is crucial to unleash the region’s growth potential but it requires more cooperation between public and private actors and the involvement of the multilateral development and investment banks. The challenge for the region is to make investments in infrastructures an enabler for a more sustained and sustainable economic growth, giving higher attention to their social and environmental impact.

ROME MED – MEDITERRANEAN DIALOGUES is the annual high-level initiative promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and ISPI, engaging prominent leaders of Mediterranean governments, business, civil society, media and academia. It aims at drafting a “positive agenda” for the Mediterranean by stimulating debate and promoting new ideas, rethinking traditional approaches and addressing shared challenges at both the regional and the international level.
In this context, this by-invitation-only Forum, organized by ISPI, with the knowledge partnership of McKinsey & Company, aims to bring together a restricted group of top business and institutional representatives, coming from all over the Mediterranean region at large, in order to exchange ideas, experiences and best practices. It has been conceived as an open dialogue ensuring a high interaction and exchange of views among participants, under the Chatham House Rule.
