Martin Bellamy – CEO, Gravity.

Freeports are exactly what the UK needs right now, they reduce costs and bureaucracy for occupiers, encouraging manufacturing businesses to invest and create new jobs. Freeports are a major opportunity for a post-Brexit UK to increase trade with the US and fast-growing Asian markets at a time when the UK is signing more trade deals with global partners , Gravity stands ready to support and enable the UK increase international trade.

There are already many successful free trading zones around the world, with the most successful Freeports attracting business and creating jobs. The Great Western (Bristol) Freeport has immense opportunity to kick start a new era of British manufacturing, providing sustainable, innovative, long-term jobs that would drive post-Covid Britain’s road to a green recovery. Myself, and the team at Gravity are incredibly proud to play our part in this.
