Ocean Action Hub

Africa Blue Economy Forum 2019 takes place from 25 to 26 June in Tunisia.

Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF) is about bold new thinking to accelerate Africa’s structural transformation and create jobs for a young population on the rise.

It offers an ideal opportunity for businesses and policy makers to understand, explore and invest in the blue economy, harness its potential and create a sustainable business model for the future.

Africa’s maritime industry is estimated at around US$1 trillion per year, covering a large variety of sectors including fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, transport, oil and gas, ports and trade, energy, seabed mining and so on.
