European Maritime and Fisheries Fund 2021-2027: Council ready to negotiate with the European Parliament

Met dank overgenomen van Roemeens voorzitterschap Europese Unie 1e helft 2019 (Roemeens voorzitterschap) i, gepubliceerd op dinsdag 18 juni 2019.

The EU is working to improve the existing European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in the coming years to encourage a dynamic fishing sector, support generational renewal, and ensure a fair standard of living for coastal communities.

The Council today agreed its negotiating position (‘partial general approach‘) on the proposal for a regulation on the 2021-2027 EMFF, which aims to support the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), the EU’s maritime policy and international commitments in the field of ocean governance, especially in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

“The EMFF is key to ensuring proper implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy’s objectives. In the past its effectiveness was undermined by complex rules and red tape, but the Council is committed to make it a flexible and workable tool at the service of European fishermen”, said Petre Daea, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of Romania and President of the Council.
