ASE & AMESA Senators’ Mediterranean Summit

The ASE and AMESA (Africa and the Middle-East Senate Association) share the similar concerns and have been working together since February 2021. Senators from the 15 JCI countries around the Mediterranean have collaborated on themes of common interest – business, NOM assistance, exchange of JCI and entrepreneurial best practices, possible joint projects etc.

This led to a virtual summit on 5 June 2021 – see ASE-AMESA Report on 2021 Mediterranean Summit and then to the first physical summit hosted in Istanbul from 19 – 22 January 2023 by the JCI Türkiye Senate.

The third SMS will be held in Tunis from the 22 – 25th February 2024.
