Launch event of "Inseparable" campaign in Hamburg
On Monday 27th January, Commissioner Damanaki is visiting Hamburg to launch the European Commission's "Inseparable" campaign. The campaign is promoting sustainable fishing across Europe and will celebrate it during an event in Hamburg's International Maritime Museum, co-hosted by the city's mayor, M. Olaf Scholz. The event builds on the momentum of the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy which came into force early January 2014.
Speakers at the event include Ms Ulrike Rodust, who led the European Parliament's negotiations during the CFP reform discussions, and Ms Maria Flachsbarth, Parliamentary Secretary of State, Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture of Germany. Representatives from industry, non-governmental organisations, consumer groups, academics, chefs and other key stakeholders will also participate.
