By encouraging the outermost regions to capitalise on their unique assets, the strategy seeks to support these regions in creating new opportunities, boosting innovation and jobs in sectors such as agriculture, fisheries, climate change and circular economy, and deepening cooperation with neighbour countries.

Two years on, the main developments in Mayotte are:

  • A more dynamic and sustainable blue economy by developing a fleet management plan and a master plan for aquaculture, by drawing up a Regional Spatial Planning scheme and by launching a regional blue economy strategy;
  • Energy transition encouraged by multiannual energy programming, particularly in terms of development of renewable energies and sustainable mobility through an experimental electric car project;
  • Support to innovation and entrepreneurship, through a techno polis bringing together manufacturing and service companies in the high-tech sectors, aimed at enhancing the capacity of businesses to operate in the single market.
