European Parliament welcomes Blue Growth initiative
The European Parliament has adopted yesterday the report on Blue Growth of MEP Spyros Danellis. The report expresses support for the Commission's Blue Growth initiative and encourages the Commission and Member States to further develop the different dimensions of Blue Growth.
The vote comes after Commissioner Damanaki participated to the presentation of the report monday evening at the plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
Commissioner Damanaki has welcomed the report and stated: "I am pleased to see that this House recognises that Blue Growth is a set of forward-looking proposals with a realistic and coherent framework."
