The Government of London proposes to set up up up to ten ports francs in the UK

The British Ports Association is calling for the model to all ports

That one of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's goals after taking the UK out of the last 31 January European Union was to make Britannia one of the free trade in world trade by offering benefits taxes in order to attract goods and investment was certainly not a mystery, nor that such a strategy could be radical, so much to make the island a kind of "extra-customs nation".

This strategy seems to be framed as consultation presented today by the Government of London on the creation of ports francs across the UK in order to boost business "Insuring," reads a note from the Department of International Trade -- what city, regions and countries across the nation can begin to benefit opportunities to leave the EU.'

The plan is to establish up to ten Swiss ports with a customs regime different than the rest of the nation, with the to encourage trade, attract investment, increase productivity and at the same time generate opportunities for work for the benefit of some of the most disadvantaged in the United Kingdom. The plan calls for these areas can be set up both in areas adjacent to ports seafarers both inland, potentially including existing production facilities. The status of a free port would be assigned at the conclusion of a tender procedure.

At the formal consultation initiated by the government, it has already informally answered by the British Ports Association (BPA). At first given this organization, which is not just a lot of ports businesses, but also Trust Ports run by non-public entities and also important ports private individuals, should not take a good look at the government proposal to set up up to ten free ports, which evidently would benefit compared to other national port ports. And so it is, since while BPA has expressed the in favour of the publication of the consultation on the other The association highlighted the need to avoid limit the freeport model to only ten stopovers, but rather than extend it to all ports. In particular, the association asked to remove the limit on the potential number of free ports and to include a much more comprehensive package of measures bpA explained that it could benefit a wide range of ports of different types of the UK. Remembering that the UK has 125 commercial ports, the association specified that the status of the free port will benefit ports to a different extent on the basis their type of trade and activity and based on the specialization. Of course - the BPA clarified - some they will be more interested than others, but there will be more ten who will want to benefit and the government should not put an arbitrary limit on this ambition.
