National Maritime are asking businesses and organisations to complete a short survey on the Blue Growth Strategy for the future.

Blue Growth is the long-term strategy of National Maritime to support sustainable economic growth for the coastal and estuarine towns and cities, and maritime industries within the Thames and Channel region. It recognises that rivers and seas are drivers for the region's economy with great potential for innovation and growth.

Blue Growth is a sector initiative involving public and private sector partners. It will highlight opportunities for economic growth and will focus on the regions nine key maritime sectors that it thinks will contribute the most to this - shipping, marine engineering and manufacturing, renewables, heritage, recreational, ports, fisheries, business services, oil and gas.

This work is led by the National Maritime Blue Council and Executive team, it will inform not only economic strategy but also the activities of maritime industries as a whole, helping to shape Government spending and our asks to deliver business and economic investment in new ways, which better suit the regions sector needs. This strategy will also consider the various ambitious regional visions and delivery plans of stakeholders including; the Thames Vision 2035, Maritime Growth Study, Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission, the EU's Blue Growth Strategy and the current work of the London and South East Local Enterprise Partnerships.
