Dr. Nooh Alshyab, scientific coordinator of the EMNES team in Jordan and member of EMEA exert panel, participated, upon the invitation of the European Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, to the “EU Med means business – shaping the future of entrepreneurship in the South” event which took place in Brussels, on 21-22 May 2019.
The event gathered over 150 young entrepreneurs, economic leaders and drivers of socio-economic change from Europe’s Southern Neighbourhood, who have set out their most urgent priorities for policy makers in the region and in the EU, to overcome barriers to higher economic growth and job creation.The participants developed recommendations to policy makers, and then voted in order to identify their twelve top priorities for action regarding investment, entrepreneurship and job creation. These will be used in preparation of future EU approaches, but will also be transmitted to decision makers in the region by the European Commission and through the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), and may be updated in the future.
The event focused on how to: 1. Attract more foreign and domestic investment and improve levels of job creation; 2. Unleash the potential of the private sector, and in particular of smaller enterprises, which create the most sustainable new jobs; 3. Boost talents and skills of young people and promote entrepreneurship and innovation to reduce the high levels of youth unemployment.
