France: decentralization of European Fisheries Fund

The Association of French Regions asks the European fund for fisheries and maritime affairs to be managed by regional councils.
The new act of decentralization desired by François Hollande plans to transfer the management of EU funds to the regions. The measure is part of the campaign promises of President. While the details are still under discussion between the different ministries, the Association of Regions of France (ARF) has launched a call for the European fund for Ocean Affairs (EMFF) to be part of the reform. "Why would it remain the only European fund not to be regionalized? " ask politicians.
Managing the fund by paying closer attention to the needs and specificities of each region is the main argument put forward by advocates of the reform.
The issue is currently discussed in the European Parliament as part of the reform of the common fisheries policy for 2014-2020. According to the actual text, the regionalization of the management of the EMFF should remain at the discretion of the States.
