#BlueEconomy - Marine Minister Michael Creed this week visited the Oceanology International trade exhibition in London on day two of his six-day visit to the UK.
Held every two years, Oceanology International at ExCeL London is recognised as the leading ocean technology and marine science event in the world, attracting more than 8,000 attendees and 500 exhibitors from over 79 countries.
Commenting on the event, Minister Creed said: “As chairman of the Government’s Marine Co-ordination Group, this is an important opportunity to support efforts to promote Irish organisations providing products and services for global marine services and furthermore to highlight Ireland as an attractive location for inward investment in the blue economy.
“The vision of the ‘Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth’ Strategy is to expand the Irish ocean economy to a value of 2.4% of GDP by 2030.”
