Malta Marittima Agency was invited to attend the Committee of the Regions Conference held in Gozo.  The conference was attended by over 100 delegates and Malta Marittima actively participated in this Conference and moderated one of the sessions during the event.  Malta is among the top five EU member states in which the blue economy most contributes to its GDP (4.7 per cent).  The Maltese blue economy employs around 10,400 people and generates €406 million in gross value added.  During the conference members adopted various draft opinions, including 'Cross-border dimension in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)', 'A new European agenda to speed up the development of maritime industries' and 'Towards a comprehensive European Union framework on endocrine disruptors'.
