MONDAY 9 SEPTEMBER
LANCASTER HOUSE ROUNDTABLE
The Secretary of State for Transport the Rt Hon. Grant Shapps MP and Maritime Minister Nusrat Ghani MP hosted maritime business leaders for a Ministerial Roundtable to discuss the key issues facing the sector and how collectively, government and industry can best work together. The agenda focused on global trade and UK competitiveness. With the changes being faced in light of the UK leaving the European Union, it was useful to discuss barriers and opportunities to trade with industry leaders. Other issues discussed included the modernisation of ports and greening of shipping, considering the need to achieve a cleaner, greener maritime sector. This exclusive meeting was an excellent and unique opportunity for the heads of the biggest names in the maritime sector to directly engage with senior members of government to discuss the
future and how they can work together to achieve their shared goals.
