Mr Thomas Sberna, Regional Head, Coastal and Ocean Resilience, International Union for the Conservation of Nature, was the main speaker in one of the sessions, themed “The Ocean, the Responsibility of One and All…”
The blue economy is the theme chosen for this first day of discussions, in the context of the Forum Économique des Îles de l’océan Indien (FEIOI).
What is the growth potential for our islands? What is the role of economic actors in the preservation of resources, and more broadly, marine ecosystems?
Regional trade will be discussed, as well as maritime connectivity and innovative opportunities offered by the blue economy.
