Opportunity Cromarty Firth is a dynamic partnership of private and public sector and academic bodies committed to realising the full potential of a sustainable 50-year, multi-billion-pound pipeline of renewable energy projects being constructed in our region.
It is backed by the Port of Cromarty Firth along with eleven other organisations, including Global Energy Group, University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), The Highland Council, HITRANS, Inverness Harbour Trust, Skills Development Scotland, Highland Resources and Semco Maritime.
Opportunity Cromarty Firth believes that the creation of a Free Trade Zone in the region would optimise the benefit to people and business for those not only in the Highlands but across Scotland; creating well-paid, sustainable jobs and opportunities.
Free Trade Zones, also referred to as Freeports, are part of the UK Government’s post-Brexit economic growth strategy. Plans are in place to create around 10 freeports across the UK which will have unique operational, regulatory and customs rules. Their objectives are to boost international trade, innovation and regeneration.
Join us at this event to find out more about the project and the opportunities it will create.
