The Market Advisory Council, particularly its Working Group 1- EU Production, chaired by Sean O’Donoghue, decided in May 2017 to organise an event on an issue of upmost importance for the MAC: the production and marketing plans (PMPs) foreseen in the Common Markets Organisation (CMO), Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and supported by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).
The event took place on the 27 September 2017 in Brussels and aimed at bringing together Member States (MS), Producer Organisations (POs), European Commission (EC), relevant stakeholders and members of the MAC to build the basis, through discussion, of a set of guidelines and good practices in the implementation of the PMPs. These guidelines will be put forward to the MAC for further discussion and elaboration.
The workshop, organised with the help of the European Commission DG MARE, was chaired by, Sean O’Donoghue, Chair of WG1 of the MAC.
We invite you to read the conclusions of the event here.
