The Euro-Mediterranean Guarantee Network (EMGN) has been working through the pandemic with its partner institutions to share best practices and experiences on the role of Credit Guarantee Schemes (CGSs) in mitigating the socioeconomic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has created a platform for members to learn, brainstorm and think about the future of Mediterranean economic resilience.
With this objective, the EMGN devoted its first Annual Virtual Conference, “Beyond Crisis Mitigation: the Role of Mediterranean Credit Guarantee Schemes in Boosting the Post-COVID-19 Recovery” to discuss the future prospects for CGSs as well as possible tools to improve their impact on local economies. This virtual event revolved around two main issues, dealing with CGSs’ role in post-Covid-19 recovery and the possibility to implement Counter Credit Guarantee Schemes in the Mediterranean region. The EMGN 2020 Annual Conference took place online on 03 December 2020
The EMGN is promoted by the Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association – EMEA, the European Institute of the Mediterranean – IEMed, and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit – GIZ.
