Rhode Island Commerce today introduced the Blue Economy Podcast, the first podcast solely dedicated to covering the big-picture happenings of the worlds burgeoning ocean economy.

Comprised of a diverse range of industries operating in and around the worlds oceans, the blue economy is emerging as one of the fastest-growing industry clusters impacting the global economy. According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the so-called super-sector is poised to double in size by 2030, generating more than $3 trillion in global economic impact and supporting more than 40 million jobs around the world.

The Blue Economy Podcast will feature in-depth interviews with influential leaders within this super-sector and cover the past, present and future of ocean-related industries such as naval defense, marine trades, tourism and recreation, commercial fishing, aquaculture, shipping, offshore renewable energy and many others.

Rhode Island, the Ocean State, is home to Americas first offshore wind farm, the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, the University of Rhode Islands Graduate School of Oceanography, and hundreds of homegrown maritime companies. Ours is truly a pioneering state in the blue economy space, said Rhode Island Secretary of Commerce Stefan Pryor. With the Blue Economy Podcast, our goal is to create a platform upon which Rhode Island leaders can join experts from across the country “ and world “ to share insights and success stories as we continue evolving the global ocean economy.
