04 April 2013

SPAIN - The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, through the General Secretariat of Fisheries, in collaboration with the Government of Galicia, organised the Third Congress of the Spanish Network of Women in the Fisheries Sector, under the theme 'Looking to the Future: Entrepreneurship and Leadership', which will be held 5-6 June in Santiago de Compostela.

This forum will be inaugurated by the Minister Miguel Arias Cañete and aims to create a space in which women who work in different areas of fisheries can reflect on the current challenges and opportunities in the fisheries sector in order to consolidate their sustainability, such as through fishing and aquaculture diversification.

Workshops will be developed in order to encourage entrepreneurship and leadership of women, so that they acquire a greater role, positioning them as change agents and allowing them to influence the evolution of the sector.
