Our Ocean Wealth Conference Announced for June 18, Dublin Castle

#oceanwealth – Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Simon Coveney TD today announced the details of a major Conference on Our Ocean Wealth which is being held in Dublin Castle on 18 June 2014.

Announcing the Conference, Minister Coveney commented that "the implementation of Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth is a whole of Government initiative. Our vision is that our nation's ocean wealth will be a key element of our economic recovery and sustainable growth and we will continue to work with the sector's stakeholders to achieve this vision for our citizens".

The Conference is the first annual review of progress in implementing the Government's 2012 publication Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth: An Integrated Marine Plan for Ireland. The Government sees the marine sector as an important pillar to our national recovery and Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth is a key driver for developing the sector to meet our growth targets for it.

The Conference will cover four main themes: The Global Opportunity for Irish Seafood; Research & Innovation and Emerging Sectors; Energy – Offshore Hydrocarbons; and Where Land Meets the Sea – Opportunities and Challenges for Marine Tourism. Key speakers will address these four themes followed by a panel discussion with relevant stakeholders.
