Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio said that “the imminent adoption of a law that will allow the declaration of Italy’s exclusive economic zone will represent an important step in the Italian authorities’ approach to the seas.”

Di Maio added, in a symposium entitled “Sea and Health” organized by the Italian Embassy to the Holy See, that “the establishment of the exclusive economic zone will not only entail the expansion of Italy’s exclusive sovereign rights over particularly large marine areas, but will also increase our country’s responsibility for the balanced and sustainable management of sea resources.” “.

“From this perspective, it will be more important for Italy to realize that it has to administer an area equal to about 20% of the entire area of ​​the Mediterranean,” the Italian Foreign Minister noted.
