The European Commission is continuing its fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing worldwide by warning Vietnam, with a "yellow card", about the risk of it being identified as a non-cooperating country.
With a coastline 7 times as long as the United States' and 4 times as long as Russia's, the EU's maritime regions are home to almost half the EU's population and account for almost half its GDP. Fisheries and the maritime economy are drivers for jobs and growth in Europe's coastal communities.
The next stop for our European Maritime Day cruise is on 31st of May and 1st of June 2018 in sunny Burgas at the Black Sea. As usual we are working with you to offer an attractive programme and great networking opportunities. You can now apply for the organisation of a workshop (deadline 30 November).
