The Maritimo-marino Cluster of Andalusia in collaboration with the Junta de Andalucía, the Autoridad Portuaria de Málaga and Málagaport took place in yesterday's European maritime day 2019 in the Farola de Málaga. The managing director of the Mediterranean Marines Group attended the event, Manuel Raigón, as well as the president of the Maritime-Marine Cluster of Andalusia, Javier Noriega;  the territorial delegate of Economy and Employment, Carmen Sanchez; the president of the Port Authority, Carlos Rubio; the Vice-President of the Parliament of Andalusia, Esperanza Oña, among others.

As indicated by the Cluster, European Union's european maritime day discourse makes clear the role of ports and their ecosystems, referring to ports as "the agents of change" that should be at the forefront of the transition to a sustainable economy based on the seas and oceans. And it is that the 90% EU foreign trade develops through its waters, representing the maritime sector around 5 millions of jobs, in addition to being one of the few sectors that were not affected economically in the time of crisis in Spain.

Today this sector is established as a priority axis for the future for job creation in Malaga and Andalusia. And it is that the data from all the subsectors that this sector moves speak for themselves: coastal tourism generates 1,5 millions of jobs, fishing generates about 400.000 Jobs, pleasure boats 25.000 Works, maritime equipment 14.500, maritime transport 8.000 and shipbuilding generates more than 5.000 jobs.

With ports as the essential axis of the Andalusian economy, it is important to analyze and support these engines of innovation for industrial development in different sectors, such as tourism or energy, and highlight the special importance of environmental preservation in the Alborán Sea, where the huge biodiversity that exists requires sustainable growth and extreme care of the marine environment.

The Maritime-Marine Cluster of Andalusia is made up of innovative companies with a high technological qualification of different subsectors linked to the sea, like fishing, Aquaculture, Shipbuilding, Shipping, recreational nautical, maritime research, formación, ports and port activities, auxiliary and maritime extraction industries, maritime tourism, underwater archaeology and communication. The objective of the CMMA is the promotion and development of the Andalusian maritime sector, to achieve greater competitiveness across the sector.
