 MEDITERRANEAN. The meeting of the Member States of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) on Friday 27 November 2020 in virtual form led to the creation of an "International Day of the Mediterranean".

It will now be celebrated each year on 28 November to "foster a common Mediterranean identity, while promoting intercultural exchanges and embracing the region's diversity", says a UfM press release.

This fifth regional forum was organised from the Catalan capital and coincided with the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Barcelona Process. The ministers representing the forty-two Mediterranean states "agreed to focus special efforts in the coming year on further integrating economies through promoting trade and investment, encouraging climate action and sustainable growth models and supporting digital transformation, while maintaining the UfM's long-standing focus on the empowerment and employment of women, especially the youngest", says the final declaration.
