National Maritime Blue Growth Strategy
We invite you to complete this short survey
We are developing a Blue Growth strategy to support the long term sustainable economic growth of coastal and estuarine towns and cities, and maritime industries located within the Thames and Channel region.
To do this, we have now started to map the location of all maritime industries within the region and those organisations who provide maritime education, training facilities and programmes.
We invite you to contribute to this work by completing this brief ten question survey
