WITH THE launch of Maritime 2050, the government has committed to work with British Marine and its members to identify, develop and deliver tangible support for leisure marine, superyacht and small commercial marine industries.

This includes looking at the protection of strategic waterfront sites so that the sector has the scope to expand businesses and increase output.

It has also pledged to review any issues which might prevent UK businesses from being competitive in bids for UK based contracts and if necessary, explore options to provide appropriate support.
