The EU’s southern Mediterranean neighbours

This paper gives statistical background for ten partners in the South Mediterranean neighbourhood: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT, the West Bank and Gaza Strip), Syria and Tunisia.

This Spotlight aims to visualise different indicators: firstly it shows the amount of aid paid by the EU institutions to the ten countries, under instruments like ENPI (European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument), ECHO (European Community Humanitarian Office) as well as others. It shows the amount paid in the whole period 2001-2011, the breakdown per year and per country and finally the breakdown by sector for the year 2011. It considers as well the aid programmed for the years 2012 and 2013 for each country. It shows gross domestic product (GDP) for those countries in relation to EU GDP for the 2001-2011 period. Inward foreign direct investment (FDI) and trade in goods are considered, as well as the employment rate. Three indexes are then presented to give an overall view of the corruption perceived in those countries, the level of human development and the level of freedom.
