Integrated Maritime Policy
In the context of the Integrated Maritime Policy, Greece recognizes the potential and the opportunities arising from the shipping industry, focusing its efforts on attracting investments, creating jobs, strengthening competitiveness, and highlighting the insularity factor in the EU, in full respect of the marine environment and the marine resources. The adoption of the Athens Declaration (5 June 2014) on the “Mid-term review of the EU’s maritime transport policy until 2018 and outlook to 2020 ", under the Greek Presidency (1st semester of 2014), is the capstone of these efforts. Furthermore, the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region along with its Action Plan (17 June 2014) are of particular interest for Greece because both texts explore the opportunities emerging from the maritime economy, combined transport (involving both land and sea transport), energy connectivity, environment protection and tourism. It is noteworthy to mention that all these sectors play a crucial role in creating jobs and stimulating economic growth.
