European Parliament Fisheries Committee discusses future political priorities

The European Parliament Committee for Fisheries discussed today political priorities for the months ahead and for 2013.

Commissioner Damanaki, presenting the Commission position, stressed that "The adoption of the reform is our key priority. The sooner the reform is adopted, the quicker its benefits for the sector can start to materialise. We will be able to start moving towards sustainable fishing, and we will benefit from additional income and extra jobs."

On the basis of the meeting, the European Parliament will prepare a resolution containing its political priorities, to be adopted in July.
