Welcome words from the Minister of the Sea of Portugal

Ana Paula Vitorino

   "It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to Portugal, for the International BioMarine Business Convention. Portugal’s existing added value (geo-       strategic location, highly skilled human resources, existing infrastructures and ocean natural resources) makes our country a natural option for blue     economy business at global level.

  The traditional maritime sector and the emerging sectors, like the marine biotechnology, are highly valuable assets for Portugal as they enable our   economy to innovate and develop. This is an ambitious strategy that aims to support our knowhow, in order to develop the enormous potential of our   maritime space in a sustainable way that is not only respectful of the ecosystems, but also profitable for the economy.

Fortunately, Portugal is facing a reorganisation of several groups working on the marine sector that understand that together they are stronger and more competitive. This is the case of a cluster of players (companies, research groups, associations) working in the marine bioresources and blue biotech value chain. I truly believe in cross collaboration between activities and sectors of the blue economy, nationally and internationally. This is why Portugal is supporting the Organisation of this Convention in 2018, promoting Portuguese companies and providing a privileged space to stimulate sustainable business in the marine bioresources area. This is an exceptional opportunity to set the groundwork for fruitful new partnerships, benefitting both our societies and our environment.

Therefore, it is my honour to invite all of you to come to Portugal to share the latest developments regarding the Ocean and the evolution and opportunities that our country offers for a sustainable blue economy."


Welcome words from the Mayor of Cascais:

Carlos Carreiras

"Globalization by sea was driven by Portuguese sailors, explorers and adventurers.

For the first time the entire world was connected and Cascais was in the front seat of Discoveries. We are proud heirs of that past. But we keep our eyes on the future.
We keep the tradition safe as we stand for sustainable oceans exploration. We inspire the spirit of adventure as we secure law enforcement on resources protection.
We look at the sea today as we did in the past: pledging for security and education and science through oceans. 

Now is the time to globalize solutions for our maritime resources. 

Cascais is the right place to invest and test ideas. We invite all innovative partners to join us in developing the blue economy.

BioMarine and Cascais will certainly do it over, at least, the next four years."
