Mediterranean countries have faced challenges in the wake of the financial crisis and political unrest. As several major world economies turn inwards, the Mediterranean can build resilience by strengthening neighbourhood ties, creating prosperity for its people and improving scale and scope for international investors.

The Mediterranean Growth Initiative (MGI) is an independent, private sector initiative supporting thinking and doing around the Mediterranean.

The MGI rests on two key pillars: understanding the region and its potential using data and analysis, and bringing together key decision-makers and investors. 

In 2016 we published the inaugural MGI Report, a data-driven assessment of political, economic and social progress in the countries of the Mediterranean. launched in April 2017, providing direct access to data, forecasts and analysis covering the countries of the Mediterranean.
