We are engaging with industry experts and economists to ensure we make Freeports a success, by developing an extremely ambitious and attractive offer for businesses interested in investing in Freeports. As the next step in this agenda, a public consultation on Freeports policy was launched on 10th February, which will last for ten weeks. We will take on board suggestions and feedback from stakeholders and the public during this consultation and make further announcements in due course.
