MSG is the core convening activity of GMF’s Mediterranean policy program and the theme of this meeting was the evolving role of the U.S. in the Mediterranean, addressing topics such as trade and investment, regional security, and the outlook for transatlantic partnership in the Mediterranean. Around 40 experts and officials from the public and private sectors on both sides of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean met for two days of informal roundtable style discussion under the Chatham House rule.Keep me informed

Over the last 15 years, the assumption that manufacturing is the golden path to development has been turned on its head. Developing countries have grown rapidly until very recently, yet they are deindustrializing almost as rapidly as advanced countries. Several traditional and modern service sectors have become not only the most important source of jobs, but also of good, high paying jobs. Productivity in the service sector is advancing as fast or faster than in manufacturing in many instances, and information technologies have made many services tradable. Countries across the developing world can now rely on migrant remittances as a significant and stable source of foreign currency earnings. At the same time, high prices of commodities have made the natural resource sector a much more important source of exports than manufactures in many developing countries. Do these trends hold out hope for countries that have made only limited inroads in manufacturing? Should countries still privilege manufacturing in their development policy? How does Morocco fit in this picture?Keep me informed

Six years after the outbreak of the Great recession, 2014 has been significantly weaker than expected, and the prospects for a durable recovery remain murky. Not only are the giant economies of the Eurozone and Japan are at risk of a relapse into recession, but large parts of the emerging world have slowed to a crawl. Geopolitical and internal tensions are now holding back countries in an arc that stretches from Russia to Ukraine and to Egypt and Afghanistan. Yet, the United States and the United Kingdom appear firmly set on a complete recovery path and growth in China and India and in many countries of Asia and Africa is holding up. The seminar will examine two major issues: will a broad-based global recovery finally take hold in 2015-16, or will the economic outlook darken again? And does slower growth in large parts of the developing world signal the end of a remarkable 25 –year process of convergence towards the income level of advanced countries?Keep me informed
