East Med Gas Forum could boost cross-border energy flow
By Dr. Charles Ellinas
Egypt, Italy, Greece, Israel, Cyprus, Jordan and Palestinian Authority signed on Tuesday, through a teleconference, a charter turning the East Med Gas Forum (EMGF) into an international body.
EMGF was originally founded in 2018 at the behest of Egypt, as part of its plans to turn the country into the gas hub of the region.
With Greece and Turkey about to enter into discussions to resolve their maritime disputes, signing of the EMGF charter may be quite timely.
