The development of freeports in the UK forms a key part of the government’s plans for post pandemic economic recovery; with a focus on driving clean growth and supporting the levelling up agenda.

The objectives of each of the 8 announced Freeports are to act as national hubs for global trade and investment, create hotbeds for R&D innovation, and promote regeneration. WIG is delighted to welcome this expert panel to discuss how organisations across the sectors can work together to ensure the Freeports meet these shared goals.

Join this live discussion for your opportunity to:

  • Understand the benefits of the freeport model for UK exporters
  • Consider how to maximise their positive impact in local communities through job creation, infrastructure improvement, and inward investment
  • Learn how cross-sector stakeholders have collaborated through the bidding process, into implementation and delivery
