Mediterranean New Economies

A New Mediterranean

Regionalization presents vast opportunities, particularly as trade barriers are potentially lowered and quicker, more cost-effective transportation methods are unlocked. End-to-end logistics goods and services should be tailored to foster environments conducive to business growth within regional trading blocs, underscored by a comprehensive understanding of the regions in which they operate.

The evolving economic and commercial landscape is driving the trend towards shorter logistics chains, increasingly favoring regional configurations. In this context, the Mediterranean region emerges as a promising North-South complementary production hub. Its strategic geographical location enables the streamlining of logistical circuits with the EU and Africa, while simultaneously reducing the carbon footprint. Additionally, the region boasts highly competitive labor costs and significant potential for scientific and technological innovation.Various industrialized nations have begun reorganizing their value chains, opting for national or regional relocations. This prevailing trend, encompassing industrial value chains, may present an opportunity for the Mediterranean region to capitalize on.

In light of these developments, what are the challenges associated with relocation, and what is the potential for co-industrialization between Mediterranean and European economies?
