Maritime UK announces a major new initiative in production of the Maritime UK Annual Review.
Designed to act as a focal point and provide a comprehensive overview of developments within the UK maritime sector, the Annual Review will communicate activity by industry to promote, strengthen and grow the sector.
In recent years government and industry have been working in partnership to grow the UK’s maritime sector, work which has taken on increased importance following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.
Maritime UK brings together the UK’s shipping, ports, marine and business services industries to promote the sector, influence government and drive growth. Members include the Baltic Exchange, British Marine, the British Ports Association, CLIA UK & Ireland, the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, London International Shipping Week, Maritime London, Mersey Maritime, Nautilus International, Solent LEP, Seafarers UK, the Society of Maritime Industries, Trinity House, UK Chamber of Shipping and the UK Major Ports Group.
The Annual Review will tell the story of industry progress since the Maritime Growth study, along with features on the key developments and initiatives from across the breadth of the maritime sector.
The annual publication will be distributed to members, key civil servants, ministers, all MPs and priority overseas trade and diplomatic postings.
Ben Murray, Maritime UK Manager said:
“Together, the sector is making progress in raising its profile, speaking more clearly and compellingly to government, and fostering collaboration in key areas such as innovation – all to drive growth.
“This annual publication will help tell that story, showcase the various sector programmes, and highlight key developments across our four industries.”
Maritime UK has commissioned the respected port and maritime publisher Compass Handbooks to publish the Annual Review. Compass will be contacting companies to provide more details and to explain how organisations can be involved through advertising.
