The OSCE PA met for its 18th Autumn Meeting on 4-6 October 2019 in Marrakech. It was the first OSCE Parliamentary Assembly meeting hosted by a Mediterranean Partner for Co-operation, and the first OSCE PA meeting in Africa.
Photos of the Autumn Meeting are available on Flickr. Videos can be found on the PA’s YouTube channel.
The Autumn Meeting included a Mediterranean Forum, held under the theme “North-South Co-operation Models and Economic Connectivity of the Mediterranean Region in a Globalized World,” and a Parliamentary Conference under the theme “Promoting Security Across the Euro-Mediterranean Region: The Role of the OSCE and its Partners.” The Standing Committee of heads of national delegations met on 5 October.
OSCE Parliamentary Assembly President George Tsereteli (Georgia) noted in his conclusions that the meeting gave OSCE parliamentarians a deeper understanding of the challenges facing the Euro-Mediterranean region, including climate change, migration, terrorism and the need to combat religious intolerance.
