Agenda, March 15th 

Following the 2018 Burgas Ministerial Declaration towards a Common Maritime Agenda for the Black Sea, the Facility for Blue Growth is pleased to announce the Regional Stakeholder Seminar on Blue Economy.

The Seminar will take place on 19 March 2019 in Istanbul, Turkey at the Hilton Istanbul Maslak.

The Seminar is organised with the support of the European Commission and the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, Permanent International Secretariat (BSEC PERMIS).

Following a series of national roundtables in various Black Sea coastal countries, we would like to hear your views on areas of mutual interest and the actions needed to support the blue economy in the region.  It aims to gather policy experts, scientists, entrepreneurs and regional organisations to debate on the challenges and opportunities for cooperation on marine and maritime affairs in the Black Sea. We will also seek to identify joint actions to support an innovative, resilient and sustainable blue economy in the region.

The Seminar is going to be conducted through parallel workshops held in an interactive manner with questions and discussions amongst key panelists and the audience. In order to facilitate discussions, background documents have been prepared to provide participants with information on the Blue Economy in the Black Sea as well as the objectives and goals of the specific workshop:
