MedCruise and ASCAME unite

MedCruise and the Association of Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ASCAME) are to work together to develop the Mediterranean region by strengthening the role of cruise ports in the Med and its adjoining seas.

Carla Salvadό, MedCruise president, and Mohamed Choucair, president of ASCAME, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) during the inaugural session of the 8th edition of the Mediterranean Week of Economic Leaders in Barcelona, Spain.

Through this MoU, MedCruise and ASCAME will intensify their cooperation and support the growing cruise industry as a facilitator for the economic and social development of the region.

“MedCruise and ASCAME will contribute to the creation of an efficient and sustainable network with the final aim to support cruise activities in the Mediterranean region, its people and its businesses all over the world,” said Salvadό. “Our association accelerates its work to bring more cruise visitors to our region. MedCruise is committed to developing an investment-friendly environment and thus fostering initiatives in the Mediterranean region and its adjoining seas in order to establish a stable, sustainable and long-lasting cruise growth.”

Both associations will share best practices, collaborate on ongoing and future international projects in the Mediterranean region, and organise and participate in bilateral meetings, events and workshops linking strategic sectors of mutual interest such as Mediterranean ports, transport & logistics and tourism.
