The main goal of this article is to provide an ex ante assessment of the long-run average treatment e¤ect of ENP on EU-MED FTA. The novelty of this work is twofold: to present nonparametric matching estimators along with gravity estimates; to assume, as a counterfactual, the ex-post treatment e¤ect of the EAs. Our empirical outcomes show a strong and robust impact on EU-MED trade integration of the new "deep integra- tion" e¤orts made by the EU. This empirical evidence is relevant both to policymaking and to strengthen the empirical assessment of the EU "policy impact" in the Mediterranean Area.
