Baltic Blue Growth was one of ten workshops that took place at the 4th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (11 November 2013 Vilnius, Lithuania.)

‘Blue growth’ is a long-term strategy to support growth in the maritime sector as a whole. Because of innovation in the region, as well as the environmental challenges, the Baltic Sea region is best placed to combine blue and green growth. The workshop discussed where the potential for blue growth lies in the region and how to make the most of the Strategy to spur new initiatives to unlock this blue growth potential, which will lead to employment opportunities and competitiveness.
