ABSTRACT: Maritime sector’s growth is defined and specified by Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, Integrated maritime policy and Blue growth strategy. However, practical implementation of such positive regulations isn’t so resultative, because Blue growth, same as overall EU zone economic development meets significant troubles. Blue growth methodology needs to be more certain and sustained in overall system of EU development approaches. Here is highlighted, that further growth is possible in several areas: aquaculture, coastal tourism, marine biotechnology, ocean energy, seabed mining. Majority of core maritime activities as industry, logistic and infrastructure hasn’t provided as valuable in reason of methodological understanding of a growth in terms of physical and economic growth.

This opens panel for discussion with business, politicians, communities on matter of improvement EU Blue growth strategy towards radicalisation of EU growth trends.
