Aspects of the Integrated Maritime Policy of the European Union

The EU policies on maritime transport, industry, coastal regions, fisheries, etc., have been developed separately, for a long period of time. The European Parliament, through the voice of several parliamentary committees, often criticized this, with the concern of the formation of a common maritime policy aimed at integrating the internal market for maritime transport and services within the European Union. Through this article the authors intend to do a brief analysis on the importance of a uniform management of regional maritime policies of the European Union and its objectives, in order to promote a political leadership in international maritime affairs. This new approach aims to foster optimal development of all maritime activities in a sustainable manner in various fields such as employment in maritime sectors, fisheries, maritime and river transport, marine research in the marine sector, construction of ships, maritime surveillance, maritime and coastal tourism, coastal development and external relations in maritime affairs.
