Gijón, 1-2 June 2006:
AMRIE Conference

AMRIE (the Alliance of Maritime Regional Interests in Europe) is an independent not-for-profit organisation and policy research institute, established in 1993 as an initiative of Members of the European Parliament.

The overall objective of AMRIE is to develop and promote a European integrated maritime strategy.

The conference was intended to address the framework and implications of the EU Maritime Policy. Dr. Joe Borg, European Commissioner for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, gave a keynote speech on The Green Paper Approach which outlined ideas for an EU Maritime Policy.

Green Award was represented at this conference. Jan Fransen, Managing Director of Green Award, delivered a presentation giving a ‘Stakeholders’ viewpoint.’ Mr. Fransen advised the attendees to bear in mind that there are instruments which create a network of preference for quality shipping, like Green Award.

The conference which was organised in co-operation with Puerto de Gijón brought together local and European policy-makers and specialists.
