On 24 August 2020, the European Commission adopted a package of proposals that aims to increase trade between the European Union and neighbouring countries in the Pan-Euro-Mediterranean (PEM) region. The proposals will modernise the EU's preferential trade agreements with 20 PEM trading partners by making the relevant ‘rules of origin' in those agreements more flexible and business-friendly. The proposals concern the amendment of the origin rules in the EU bilateral agreements with 20 Contracting Parties to the PEM Convention.
