Taking place on Wednesday 13 October 2021, from 10:00am-12:00pm, the event will examine the crucial role that ABP's five South Wales ports (Barry, Cardiff, Newport, Port Talbot and Swansea) could play in the future, as Wales charts a path to a decarbonised and digitised economy over the next thirty years.
Two keynote talks and a panel discussion will be themed around the ABP’s newly published ‘White Paper’, which covers a range of different themes and issues, and includes a series of “missions” that represent some of the challenges that Wales faces over the next 30 years.
Our four identified missions are;
Mission 1: Decarbonising energy generation
Mission 2: Decarbonising the manufacturing process
Mission 3: Decarbonising the logistics industry
Mission 4: Creating growth environments for communities, businesses and ecosystems
The event is free to attend and relevant to a diverse audience of businesses, business and community groups, academic institutions, political representatives and other stakeholders with an interest in economic development, sustainability, planning and regeneration, manufacturing and export, maritime and logistics.
There will be an opportunity to network virtually with other attendees, submit questions, download useful resources and ultimately learn about the future transformation of Wales’ ports.
Future ports: Wales vision is a unique opportunity to take part in an important discussion about the future of Wales’ ports. It is also a chance to explore how your organisation could play a part in working alongside port operators, governments, businesses and local communities to meet the challenges and realise the opportunities that lie ahead.
