FRANCE. During the meeting of Wednesday 27 November 2019, Laure-Agnès Caradec was re-elected President of the Board of Directors of the Euroméditerranée Public Establishment for Development (EPAEM) in Marseille.

As the head of this institution, the largest urban renewal operation in Southern Europe, for the Bouches-du-Rhône department, she has held this position of president since 26 November 2015 after succeeding the economist Bernard Morel, who has reached the age limit.

During her first mandate, this fifty-two year old engineer - holder of a DESS (post-graduate diploma) in urban planning, construction and regional development law and a university degree in real estate economics - notably launched the Euromed 2 eco-neighbourhood. Laure-Agnès Caradec is also president of Agam (the urban development agency for the Marseille conurbation).

An operation of national interest, Euroméditerranée was launched in October 1995 and today benefits from more than 200,000 m² of public facilities, 37,000 jobs and 270,000 m² of shops within its perimeter.
