The specific theme of the ASPC for 2017 is on topics related to Priority 4 of the AAP to “Create a Socially Inclusive and Sustainable Model of Regional Development’. More specifically, the conference will focus on the theme of regeneration and issues and topics such as health benefits and environmental improvements to coastal communities, best-practices in social inclusion, workforce development for blue skills, recreation and tourism projects, preservation and protection of tourist attractions and the seasonality challenge in the tourism sector, to name just a few.

Welcome address at the 2017 ASPC will be given by Councillor Ms. Eva Bolander, Lord Provost of the City of Glasgow, Mr. Fergus Ewing, Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy and Connectivity, Mr. Jerry Lundy, Member of the Committee of the Regions and the Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Mr. Karmenu Vella.
