UK Major Ports Group responds to the Brexit White Paper

Tim Morris, Chief Executive of the UK Major Ports Group, representing the nation’s main gateways with the world for trade commented: “Today’s White Paper is a welcome step forward. The greater detail on the Government’s practical proposals for the future relationship between the UK and the EU benefits not just ports but the economy as a whole. The focus on ensuring and improving the flow of trade – both with the EU and the Rest of the World – is one that the UK’s major ports very much support if realised. We hope that the White Paper as well as addressing the challenges from Brexit keeps open the opportunities, such as putting in the place the right conditions for boosting jobs and investment in the UK’s coastal regions through growing the UK’s unique major ports sector.”
