h 09:30-11:00 Opening session
Europe is facing the double challenge of creating more growth and jobs than in the past, while making sure that economic growth is consistent with a good state of the environment and with the sustainable use of the planet resources.
Blue Growth is a concept that integrates growth and ecosystems in one coherent policy vision.
Healthy, well-managed oceans can be a source of food, jobs and prosperity; at the same time they must continue to provide the essential protection without which nine billion human beings cannot survive.
Seas and oceans have an enormous, untapped potential for creating wealth in a vast number of fields. A number of new and innovative maritime sectors, such as offshore energy, green shipping, or blue biotech, as well as more traditional sectors, such as, maritime transport and fisheries, can be a major source of growth and jobs. If well managed, they can preserve and actually improve the state of the environment.
The conceptual framework to support this vision is already there - in the Blue Growth agenda and the new Common Fisheries Policy.

This is a new approach which will require concrete initiatives to be developed in the near future, with the active involvement of stakeholders. This session would discuss the new regulatory framework and the prospects and conditions for developing such initiatives.
