European Union Revises Its Maritime Security Action Plan

Ninety percent of the EU’s external trade and 40 percent of its internal trade is transported by sea. Safe and secure seas and oceans are of fundamental importance for free trade, the EU economy and living standards.

The Council on June 26 adopted conclusions on the revision of the EU maritime security strategy (EUMSS) action plan.

“With this action plan, the EU reaffirms its role as a global maritime security provider. It promotes international cooperation, maritime multilateralism and the rule of law at sea, in line with the strategic priorities identified in the EU Global Strategy,” said High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini.

The revision adopted allows for a more focused reporting process to enhance awareness and better follow-up to the strategy. The action plan brings together both internal and external aspects of the Union’s maritime security. The actions foreseen in the plan also contribute to the implementation of the EU Global Strategy, the renewed EU internal security strategy 2015-2020, the Council conclusions on global maritime security, and the joint communication on international ocean governance.
