Law of the Sea – Meeting between Annick Girardin and Michel Aymeric, Secretary General for the Sea (Paris, November 20, 2015)


Annick Girardin, Minister of State for Development and Francophonie, will meet today with Michel Aymeric, Secretary General for the Sea.

A month after the meeting of the Interministerial Committee for the Sea, which set out new guidelines for our maritime policy, they will take stock of our policy to extend France’s continental shelf and the prospects for changing the Law of the Sea to cover marine biodiversity. Our country has the world’s second largest maritime area.

They will also work on preparations for the one-day event devoted to ocean management during the Paris Climate Conference.
