Regional Spotlight & Coastal Powerhouse Manifesto

As an island nation the UK relies on the sea and the coast for the vast majority of the trade that businesses and all of us as individuals benefit from every day. But maritime businesses operating all around the coast offer so much more than that. They are catalysts for investment, jobs and prosperity for coastal communities - communities that can often be amongst the poorest in the UK.

At London International Shipping Week 2021, Maritime UK, in collaboration with the LGA Coastal Special Interest Group, the British Ports Association, the UK Major Ports Group and its network of regional cluster organisations around the UK, launched a new Coastal Powerhouse Manifesto.
