The European Investment Bank (EIB) is organising its 2018 MED Conference on 2 July in Amman, Jordan, bringing together leaders and experts in the Mediterranean region to discuss what works and where investors can make an impact. In particular, it will focus on two of the most vital needs: water and jobs.
After setting the scene with an overview of the macroeconomic situation in the Mediterranean region, the discussions will focus on how the Economic Resilience Initiative (ERI) helps to build the capacity of economies to absorb and respond to crises and shocks while maintaining strong growth.
The sessions will highlight the product toolbox available under ERI (including loans to SMEs and mid-caps, technical assistance, microfinance, equity and venture debt), but also give project promoters an opportunity to share their experience of working with EIB in the ERI context.
A B2B-session will close the conference and provide participants and promoters with an opportunity to meet the Bank’s representatives, to present their business cases and learn how the ERI might support their projects.
Business leaders, decision-makers, government representatives, national and international organisations and financial institutions, start-ups, microfinance companies, research centres and universities, chambers of commerce and business associations are kindly invited to attend the event by registering online.
