Intended for the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund: the Commission presented the investment proposal for the maritime economy with a plan of 6, 14 billion

The European ministers welcomed the Commission’s proposal.

The proposal aims to support the achievement of the objectives of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), including aquaculture, and the implementation of the Union’s maritime policy, as well as strengthening the Union’s international commitments on the governance of the oceans, in particular in the context of the 2030 Development Agenda sustainable.
