BNEW Session in Barcelona

Clara Gruitrooy

Yesterday, the Secretary General of the #EMAeVClara Gruitrooy, participated at the BNEW – Barcelona New Economy Week. Together with moderator Roger Albinyana Saigí (European Institute of the Mediterranean) and her fellow panellists Véronique Elie (Alfil Logistics), Hamed EL ETREBY (Union for the Mediterranean) & Maryse Louis (FEMISE), they discussed potentials and challenges for regionalizing supply and value chains in the Mediterranean.

🌍 When asked about the environmental aspects of #Regionalization, Clara emphasized that “supply and value chains are not only about bringing one product from A to B, but we should also be talking about people and creating more value addition for them. To make supply and value chains more sustainable, we need to work with the companies, with the governments, and with the people altogether to implement the great innovations – particularly in the field of digitalization – that are already out there!”
