EU-Côte d'Ivoire fisheries agreement

06-02-2019

The European Parliament's consent is required for the conclusion of a new protocol associated with the EU-Côte d'Ivoire fisheries agreement. The protocol sets out the fishing opportunities available to the EU fleet in Côte d'Ivoire waters, on the basis of the best available scientific advice, and specifies the EU financial contribution in exchange, including increased support for the local fisheries sector and the 'blue economy'. The consent vote and an accompanying motion for resolution will be on the plenary agenda during the February part-session.
