Getting ready for the European Maritime Day Conference 2013

20 November 2012

The new edition of the European Maritime Day, the largest annual maritime Conference in Europe, will take place in Malta on 21 and 22 May 2013.

The event will focus on sustainable coastal and maritime tourism in the wider context of “blue growth”.  “Blue growth” is the EU's strategy to boost growth and jobs in the maritime and coastal economy focusing particularly on sectors such as shipping, tourism, energy, research and development.

Organised by the Maltese Ministry for Infrastructure, Transport, and Communication and the Maltese Ministry for Tourism, Culture and Environment, in cooperation with the European Commission (DG for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries) the event will be an occasion to reflect, at high level, on how to make “blue growth” happen through sustainable tourism, connectivity and coastal development.

This event is a unique opportunity to gather the whole maritime community into one forum to discuss best practices and new ideas.

An information meeting will be held on 29 November 2012 from 14.30-17.30 at the Permanent Representation of Malta to the EU, Rue Archimède 25, in Brussels. The information meeting is open to all maritime stakeholders.
