Europe is at a crossroads. We need concrete action, now, to make sure that the European Union delivers on growth and jobs. We need to set the scene now for those economic activities that will carry us into the future. Blue Growth  is about investing in maritime Europe, but focusing our efforts where it matters and working with emerging sectors to secure their development.

I hope that we will be able to announce a proposal on the best way to further develop Maritime spatial planning in the course of this year. The main aim of this initiative will be to ensure that planning is ensured at Member-State level, that there is a common framework on how this is done and that there is a fully-functioning cross-border cooperation between States on planning issues.

Operators tell us that they need transparency, efficiency, predictability and stability. Transparency about the rules and priorities that determine how offshore activities can take place. Efficiency of the processes that allow them to invest. Predictability about what is possible now and what will be possible in ten years. Stability, so they know that the activity they are undertaking now, has a future. They know that Maritime Spatial Planning can provide them with these essential conditions for their success.

14/04/2011: Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting in Luxembourg

Joint EU Presidency / European Commission press conference "The Western Waters regime is very important and needs to be adopted to secure sustainability of our stocks". She added: "We are going to do our best to boost the aquaculture sector, in the framework of our proposal for the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy. We need to develop more aquaculture projects, as fish is a particularly healthy and nutrient product and there is an increasing demand, which is now covered largely through imports. This means that the sector has the potential to grow and create jobs, in line with the Europe 2020 strategy. Finally, aquaculture is an alternative to overfishing and therefore can be seen as a conservation measure"

Getting away with fishing illegally will become much more difficult for fishermen, as the EU's new system for fisheries control will be fully operational. With the adoption of detailed rules on how to carry out controls throughout the market chain "from net to plate", the EU now has the means to break with the past and establish a real culture of compliance to stop overfishing and help make EU fisheries truly sustainable.
