Fisheries financial instruments will be given prominence during an EU conference in October that is considering the future of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). A dedicated workshop on financial instruments has been organised in Estonia on October 13 as part of the 'Beyond 2020: Supporting Europe's Coastal Communities' conference.
The workshop will examine how the EMFF, through financial instruments, has supported marketing and processing in the fisheries and aquaculture sector. It will also examine the scope for extending the use of financial instruments in the maritime economy in general, and for the fisheries and aquaculture sector in particular.
Further information and registration details for this workshop are available on the website of the 'Beyond 2020: Supporting Europe's Coastal Communities' conference.
