Fisheries subsidies chair circulates new text in “final push” to reach agreement at MC13

The chair of the fisheries subsidies negotiations, Ambassador Einar Gunnarsson of Iceland, on 21 December circulated a new draft text on curbing subsidies contributing to overcapacity and overfishing in order to help members push the negotiations over the finish line at the 13th Ministerial Conference (MC13) in late February 2024. The document draws on members’ proposals and deliberations, including those from the December “Fish Week” meetings, and is intended to help facilitate intensified negotiations in January.
