Freeport East Bid – Success!

4th March 2021

We’re building a new Freeport in Felixstowe and Harwich!

As the UK looks to embrace a greener, healthier Net Zero future, and ‘Build Back Better’ as we emerge from the Covid pandemic, East Anglia must seize the massive opportunities ahead in order to unlock its full potential.

That’s why I signed the joint letter to the Chancellor (with a number of other MPS from Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex) calling for him to grant Freeport status to the Freeport East bid.

The new Freeport will create thousands more high-skills jobs for the East and promote us on the global stage as a centre of trade and innovation – bringing investment and prosperity, and giving confidence to Business in the region.
