Following on from the growing success of the three previous conferences in Bucharest (2014), Sofia (2015) and Odessa (2016), the 2017 Black Sea Stakeholder Conference on Blue Economy seeks to further advance and develop the topics in these past conferences. The conference has become a main forum for institutional and private stakeholders working on maritime affairs in the Black Sea to discuss common actions and goals. These include, amongst other topics, the support of blue growth, the sharing of innovative business practices, and promoting maritime careers.

The conference will also ensure the implementation of the Bucharest declaration adopted in October 2016 on sustainable fisheries and discuss concrete actions to improve the sustainability of fishing resources, in particular with regard to scientific advice, sustainable small-scale fisheries and fighting against IUU fishing.
