The GTMO 5+5

The GTMO 5+5 -The Transport Group of the Western Mediterranean- aims to promote cooperation on transport in the Western Mediterranean and to contribute to the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership. The members of GTMO are transport ministers from the ten countries in the region (Algeria, France, Italy, Libya, Malta, Mauritania, Morocco, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia). The EC Directorate General for Mobility and Transport and the General Secretariat of the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) also participate as observers. CETMO performs the function of Technical Secretariat.

The GTMO is a group of cooperation on transport at the highest level that initiates his trajectory in 1995 in Paris, where the meeting of constitution of the group took place. Later 3 meetings of Ministers, one of high level officials and seven meetings of the group of experts who guarantee the planning and the follow-up of the works have been held. In the last Ministers’ meeting, in March 2007 in Tunis, a Protocol for the cooperation was adopted with the aim of consolidating it and institutionalizing it. Besides the Protocol, the Ministers approved the Conclusions in which the working plan of the GTMO is defined 5+5 for the next two years (2007-2009).
