Maritime Nation is a campaign to raise awareness of the vital contribution of the UK maritime sector. The campaign builds on three key principles:
- Ports and maritime are critical for UK trade.
- Britain should build on its strength as a Maritime Nation.
- Britain should have a global trading outlook.
In the aftermath of the Brexit vote, it is more important than ever to highlight the huge contribution Britain’s maritime sector makes to the national economy and to rebuild Britain as a great maritime power. Our ports and maritime industries have been the backbone of building Britain's status as a global trading power. But they are not just the foundation of our trade and prosperity in the past; they are the foundation of our trade and prosperity in the future.
