OOW 2016

Michael Creed, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, will deliver his first formal address on the marine economy. He said the conference would be an opportunity to reflect on the progress and achivements of Harnessing our Ocean Wealth – An Integrated Marine Plan for Ireland, launched in 2013.

Peter Heffernan, Marine Institute chief executive, noted that this conference was “unique” among international maritime events as it will bring together “global experts” to discuss future opportunities and challenges across all sectors of the blue economy.

“This holistic approach to the global maritime economy, and our focus on Ireland’s blue economy, makes it a must-attend event for everyone working in or involved in marine-related activities.”
