Plenary Session

I had the privilege to deliver the Sponsorship Speech on the Blue Economy Act.

The Blue Economy is a crucial matter that goes beyond borders and directly affects the future sustainability of our planet. In simple terms, it entails the responsible and sustainable utilization of oceanic resources to stimulate economic growth, enhance livelihoods, and preserve the health of our precious marine ecosystems. Through the Blue Economy Act, we demonstrate our commitment to safeguarding our marine environments.

The introduction of this proposed measure marks a significant milestone in recognizing and harnessing the full potential of our coastal and marine regions. Ultimately, it will prioritize and value these ecosystems in our developmental plans and investments, ensuring that they continue to provide lasting benefits.

It is my sincere hope that this bill be passed into law.
