ANIMA releases the 2009 review on investment and partnerships in the Mediterranean and launches its online atlas. According to the ANIMA-MIPO Observatory, foreign direct investment (FDI) towards the MED region experienced a smaller drop than at the global level. The net FDI inflows announced in 2009 reached 32.3 billion euro (-17% compared with 2008), against -35% at global level according to UNCTAD.


First new topic, ANIMA-MIPO now monitors partnership projects. They have never been so numerous (300 in 2009): companies seem to be adapting pragmatically to the new market conditions: less risky projects, more modest investments. Another consequence of the crisis, the bonus for proximity: European investments started to rise again in the MED region in 2009.


Second evolution, an online atlas is now associated with ANIMA-MIPO. Check real time all investment and partnership projects on, and download the ANIMA-MIPO 2009 review and press release.
