UK National Shipbuilding and Ship Repairers Progress Board
A leading voice towards government, the UK Shipbuilders & Shiprepairers – National Shipbuilding Strategy Progress Board objective is to support and monitor the delivery of the UK Governments refreshed National Shipbuilding Strategy, which includes a multi-billion pound vessel pipeline due to be built over the next 30 years.
Led by the expertise of the SME Maritime Working Group Shipbuilding and Repair Champions the progress board works with the UK government National Shipbuilding Office (NSO) to support the drive for transformative change to empower a globally successful, innovative and sustainable shipbuilding enterprise that works for all UK maritime SMEs.
With UK maritime SMEs playing such a significant part in the economy, it is vital that their needs are supported, and growth is enabled and encouraged.
The progress board actively engages with the NSO, UK Ministry of Defence and Government departments including the HM Treasury, UK Home Office, Cabinet Office, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, FCDO Services and the Department for Transport (DfT), United Kingdom, Department for International Trade (DIT) and Department for Education, as well as the Devolved Administrations, to continually showcase the supply chain flexibility and capability of the entire UK maritime sector.
The progress board reviews and monitors the progress and delivery of the strategy to ensure that its promises are upheld.
