The Euro-Mediterranean Agreement established a partnership between the European Union and the seven countries in the southern Mediterranean. The agreements were signed between 1998 and 2005 with the core aims of strengthening the North-South dialogue, and removing barriers to trade and investment. Since 2005, there has been a significant increase in economic, social and cultural cooperation between the EU and the Mediterranean, and between the Southern Mediterranean countries themselves. Ongoing bilateral and multilateral negotiations are focused on further liberalizing trade in agriculture and services, and promoting regulatory convergence of industrial products.
