As part of our work preparing to make a success of our departure from the European Union we are carrying out a full suite of analysis as you would expect a responsible Government to do. This analysis covers 58 sectors as well as cross-cutting regulatory, economic and social issues to help inform our negotiation positions.

We are examining all areas of the UK economy from a number of perspectives and seeking input from a wide range of stakeholders. This sectoral analysis sits alongside regional and small business engagement across the UK.

The Government’s Maritime and Ports sectoral report sets out a description of the sector, the current EU regulatory regime, existing frameworks for how trade is facilitated between countries in this sector and sector views. This report has been made available for members of both Houses to read in a secure reading room.

We are committed to the best possible deal for the United Kingdom - a deal that works for the entirety of the UK economy. We have been engaging with businesses and industry bodies from all sectors of the economy and parts of the UK in order to inform our negotiations with the EU.
