Inquiry into the Potential of the Maritime Economy in Wales

The National Assembly for Wales’ Enterprise and Business Committee undertook an inquiry into Developing the Potential of the Maritime Economy.

 

The Committee sought views on:

 

  • The Welsh Government’s approach to developing the potential of the maritime economy;
  • The use of EU funding sources to support the development of the maritime economy;
  • Welsh engagement with EU level initiatives such as Ocean Energy Europe and the Ocean Energy Forum;
  • The effectiveness of Welsh ports and hinterland connections in Wales in promoting connectivity to Ireland and the rest of Wales;
  • The way in which the Enterprise Zones help to promote the ports and related businesses;
  • How Welsh ports, ferry operators and related businesses can benefit from and support the development of the Maritime economy, including marine energy;
  • What, if any, support should be provided to ensure the benefits are realised in the most effective way;
  • The implications of the St David’s Day announcement which proposes to devolve the responsibility of ports policy to Wales and how it can support connectivity and the development of the Maritime Economy;
  • How can Wales realise the strategic importance of planned initiatives such as the tidal lagoon projects in West Wales and the Anglesey Energy Island Programme?
  • We would like you to contact us and tell us what you think are the key barriers and risks to development of marine energy and how Wales can help overcome these.
  • How Welsh ports, ferry operators and related businesses can benefit from and support the development of the Maritime economy, including marine energy;
