These Cooperation Protocols focus on five distinct dimensions of objectives and actions:
It is also agreed that joint actions and initiatives be undertaken, both to preserve and disseminate the values of the Mediterranean Diet.
The signing of these two protocols is of particular importance because of the close ties that characterize the departments involved in the two institutions, as well as the common parameters and concerns that they share. The strengthening of cooperation between the two institutions aims for this cooperation to be long-term in nature.
We are proud to announce that we have been honoured by the Hoteliers
Association of Chania-Crete with a distinct invitation extended towards the
Chef of CIHEAM-MAICh for a trip to China, where he will demonstrate the
Mediterranean and Cretan Diet, in a number of cities through the Sheraton
Hotel group. In this way, CIHEAM-MAICh will be helping to disseminate the
advantages of the Mediterranean Diet.
France, Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey and before that, Tunisia... Several Member States of our Organisation have been directly affected by despicable attacks in 2015 causing the death of several innocent civilians and aimed at creating a climate of fear.
Bringing together 13 Mediterranean countries and working with nearly 50 States in the world, the CIHEAM condemns these terrorist attacks and wishes to express all its compassion towards the victims of these tragic events.
Convinced that intercultural dialogue, the sharing of knowledge, the promotion of diversity and solidarity between Mediterranean peoples are fundamental values to build peace, through its Institutes and the projects that are implemented, the CIHEAM daily demonstrates that the coexistence of different nationalities, communities and beliefs is a major force.
We state with conviction that a Mediterranean that listens, acts and prepares a better future for the younger generations exists. A Mediterranean where agricultural and fisheries development, foodsecurity and territorial cohesion are the seeds of social stability, sustainable growth and the vitality of the regions.
Preventing future crises and conflicts is possible if we work on strategic priorities today.
