Ships study

[ November 27, 2014   //   ]

Transport Minister John Hayes launched a study into how to boost the UK’s maritime industry on 26 November. It will look at all aspects of the sector to identify where and how improvements can be made to generate growth and will report in summer 2015. It is expected to make recommendations that could benefit areas including ship financing, ownership and operation; maritime education, skills, research and technology; and the government administration of maritime activities, including ship registration and other policies.
