The Annual European Coast Guard Event is taking place in La Toja (Spain) on 11-12 April 2018. National authorities performing coast guard functions and other EU and international partners will be able to provide consultation and feedback on the Agencies’ cross-sectoral, cross-border cooperation activities. The event shall facilitate the identification of possible future cooperation activities relevant to the stakeholder communities of the three Agencies: the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, the European Fisheries Control Agency and the European Maritime Safety Agency.
More specifically the event shall facilitate:
- raising awareness of the tasks, functions and operational activities of each Agency to the stakeholder communities of the other Agencies;
- reporting of ongoing and completed joint activities of the Agencies in support of the national authorities performing coast guard functions;
- obtaining stakeholders feedback on the joint activities of the Agencies in support of the European Coast Guard initiative (reality check);
- identification of future joint activities of the Agencies in support and assistance to national authorities carrying out coast guard functions as a solid input for the development of the Annual Strategic Plan to be approved by the next Tripartite Working Arrangement Steering Committee and included in the Agencies’ Programming Document.
