    Supporting maritime business growth


    Opening remarks
    Mr Ivaylo Moskovski, Minister for Transport, Information Technology and Communications, Bulgaria
    Political opportunities to enhance business growth
    Panel 1: Connecting business
    Being the backbone of the blue economy, maritime transport is asource of innovation and can also be a key driver for associated economic activities such as coastal tourism, development of yachting and marinas, etc. It is also crucial for linking up economic activities on land and at sea. How to integrate development of emerging areas of blue growth, creating necessary security for investments andensuring environmental sustainability of maritime spatial planning aresome of the challenges this panel will explore.

    Moderation: Mr Peter Kirov, Maritime Administration Agency, Bulgaria
    Panel 2: Fishing for tourists
    The fact that coastal tourism is the biggest maritime activity in terms of jobs, makes it also an engine of the blue economies across the Black Sea. Fishing, in turn, is still important in many areas. Both activities, however, clearly depend on a healthy marine environment.Clean seas are a crucial asset to strenghten fishing communities by providing other sources of income, such as pescatourism, and newtouristic destinations can showcase the natural and cultural heritage.The panel will discuss innovative methods and ideas to use the BlackSea in a more sustainable manner.

    Moderation: Mrs Nikolina Angelkova, Minister for Tourism, Bulgaria
    Panel 3: Creating business opportunities
    Recognising that appropriate governance and legislative structure offer ideal conditions for business incubation and development,maritime stakeholders and entrepreneurs need to be pro-active andflexible partners in the definition and planning of maritime strategies.Smart partnerships, maritime clusters and networks have thepotential to increase competitiveness, promote maritime sectors, andenhance coordination between the business-research-government 'triangle' to spur innovation in transport, shipbuilding and blue energy explotation. This panel aims to explore how we can better employ human capacities to nurture a smart and blue economy in the BlackSea.
