The Chinese Ministry of natural resources and the European Commission organised last Saturday in Shenzhen (China) the second Ocean Forum under the EU-China Blue Partnership for the Oceans. The goal: to ensure effective ocean governance for the conservation and sustainable use of the seas and its resources. The Forum brought together stakeholders from both sides, including Member States representatives, the business sector, academia, think-tanks and NGOs. Europêche appreciated the genuine engagement with China and called on all parties to drive global efforts towards sustainability, effective fisheries control and transparency, as it is applied by the EU authorities, to ensure that all fleets play by the same rules.
