The Inter-Mediterranean Commission of the CRPM (CIM) was created in Andalusia in 1990, aiming to express the commons interests of the Mediterranean regions in the main European negotiations.
At present, the CIM gathers approximately fifty regions from ten countries: Cyprus, Spain, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Portugal and Tunisia. Its goal is to grant and entry to the group of infra-state levels of the Mediterranean States. These regions are commonly described as belonging to a geopolitical entity, the Mediterranean, aiming to be a vehicle to unite, guarantee peace, stability and development in the three continents of Europe, Africa and Asia. Thus, the work of CIM is characterised by actions open to cooperation with the international organisations that work in the area (European Commission, United Nations Agencies, OECD...), Member States and their thematic networks, as well as other territory-based entities (Arco Latino, CGLU Med-Cités, organisation of Arab cities, etc.).
