Editorial

The flight route to the Maghreb countries is slightly longer than to the Balearic Islands and slightly shorter than to the Canary Islands. They are all popular holiday destinations for Europeans. The Mediterranean Sea is a joint border of Europe and the Maghreb countries. High unemployment rates in the Maghreb countries results in many people desiring to migrate to Europe. At the same time, the region is as a transit area for migrants from Sub-Sahara Africa.

Many German companies operate a plenty of production sites in the Maghreb countries – especially in comparison to other developing countries. Also, just at Europe’s doorstep the Maghreb is a significant sales region for German products. All these are reasons why Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco are very, very close to us and why we have to broaden our commitment for the region - economically, politically, and socially. We have to contribute that the local population is able to develop better life and living perspectives.
