The Chairman of the British Ports Association has urged for a return to stability and a relentless focus on creating a business environment that supports investment and skills. What is more, BPA believes that ports and shipping are very much part of the solution to UK decarbonisation challenges, but it raised concerns regarding the use of open-loop scrubbers in ports.
British Ports Association responds to Odgers Berndston survey ‘Brexit, Business Leaders and Investment’. The survey focuses on UK’s preparedness for Brexit and in the possibility of a no-deal scenario. The British Ports Association has suggested ports and terminals are considering a range of potential outcomes. The uncertainty has made it difficult for ports to make firm investment decisions in potential solutions.
The UK government and the European Union must not reach a no-deal Brexit, as this would congest food supplies, making the foods rotting at ports, and throwing retailers out of business, the British Retail Consortium warned. The warning came before British Prime Minister Theresa May hosts ministers to reach agreement on how to advance with the Brexit talks.
