Maritime Security and the Blue Economy

The ECR Group is pleased to welcome you to the first ECR International Conference on Maritime Security and the Blue Economy, which aims to look at challenges and opportunities of security in our seas and oceans, and the future of maritime trade from both a European and Transatlantic perspective.

This international conference aims to lead the discussion on the freedom of navigation as a key factor for maritime security and global trade, and discuss best practice for attaining this.

With over 90% of the world’s trade carried by sea, and with the deteriorating security situation in seas and oceans in many parts of the world, the international community is concerned for the future of maritime trade. We will be discussing several recent case studies to look at potential solutions and threats of growing tensions in the Baltic Sea, Strait of Hormuz, Arctic Sea and South China Sea.

Economic activities related to our coastal areas, oceans and seas (known as the Blue Economy), is a significant industry in Europe, generating €174 billion in revenue and sustaining jobs for nearly 3.5 million people.

This growing sector, has outpaced the growth of national economies over the last decade, and today prosperity at sea is linked to innovation. We look forward to the much needed discussion and debate on how to fully unlock the potential of this emerging economy.

Rear Adm. Benjamin Hodges

Dr. Hsiu Anne Hsiao

Dr. James Boutilier

Dr. Peter Brookes

Mr. Lukasz Greinke
