Blue Growth

Blue Growth is the EU long-term strategy aiming to support sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors, in line with the goals of the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The strategy is three-fold:

  • to develop sectors that have a high potential for jobs and sustainable growth;
  • to provide knowledge, legal certainty and security in blue economy;
  • to develop sea basin strategies to ensure tailor-made measures and to foster cooperation between countries.

The “Black Sea Assistance Mechanism” has been launched to help participating countries to establish such a sea basin strategy.
