Our vision for Freeport East

Freeport East offers a real opportunity to deliver a hub for global trade and national regeneration as well as creating a hotbed for innovation that will have impact across the UK.

With its unique global links and existing innovative sectoral clusters, Freeport East will attract inward international investment and drive domestic growth, propelling the country’s economy forward.

Including Britain’s busiest container port, Freeport East is vital to achieve the Government’s vision of Global Britain, enabling the country to forge new trading relationships with the world post-Brexit. It will also create thousands of highly skilled jobs through technical innovation, contributing to the levelling up agenda not only regionally but across the country.
