Abstract

The analysis of the features of the maritime clusters of the Atlantic Arc Member States (United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal) intends to provide an overview of the maritime economy of this area. The paper deals with the identification of the main sectors that integrate each national maritime cluster, the quantification of its weight in each respective national economy, both in percentage of Gross Value Added and Employment, and in overall to describe these territories’ maritime economy. Comparing these five different realities, unified by the Atlantic Ocean, is an analysis and an opportunity to display the EU macro-region maritime economy’s potentialities.
