Blue Council | Blue Growth
The voice of the UK maritime sector
A large part of our work is to help make the links between policy-makers, stakeholders and our membership to ensure that governments understand the views and needs of maritime industries. Blue Council is made up of government, stakeholders, local and regulatory bodies and authorities who have an interest in the regeneration and sustainable growth of estuarine and coastal communities, to help drive sector and economic growth.
It is the councils mission to deliver on behalf of our members trusted specialist expertise in communicating and influencing at a regional and UK level on maritime issues across National, European and International government and Governmental bodies . The Blue Council is currently developing a Blue Growth plan to support economic growth for the coastal and estuarine towns and cities, and maritime industries located within London and the South East – Blue Growth is a sector initiative involving public and private sector partners.
Our purpose is to serve and support our members to help them grow and increase business. We promote the UK as a world class location central to the country’s global maritime aspirations and work with those industries ambitious to drive trade, productivity and economic growth.
