On Friday, Therese joined Clemence Cheng, Executive Director of Hutchison Ports, the Board of Freeport East, its business partners EDF and Ryse Hydrogen, local MPs and councillors to host the launch of the Freeport East bid.
Freeport East is a collaboration between Felixstowe & Harwich to create a single custom zone alongside innovative plans for green energy. Felixstowe is, of course, the UK’s largest container port and Harwich an important terminal for roll-on/roll-off non-containerised freight. The government is looking to create 10 freeports across the UK and are due to make an announcement next month.
Therese said: "I and all the stakeholders are working together to make a success of this important bid. If successful, Freeport East will be a great boost for employment and prosperity on both sides of the Harwich Haven with over 13,500 jobs created."
