An Integrated Maritime Policy
An Integrated Maritime Policy - A catalyst for the future, for growth and sustainability (May 2010)
The IMP was launched just two years ago and is already revolutionising the way in which we manage maritime affairs in Europe. Its whole new approach, designed to remove the barriers between different sectors and place a sustainable, global vision at the heart of all maritime initiatives, has won the support of Europe's decision-makers and maritime players. We can now set about harnessing the potential of our seas and oceans to generate economic growth and create new jobs, while respecting the marine environment.
