Maritime Minister to open M&CCE Expo 2019

UK Minister for Maritime, Nusrat Ghani meets Alex Sinclair of Marlan Technologies at Seawork 2018

Nusrat Ghani, UK Minister responsible for Maritime, Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), Maritime Security, Skills and Apprenticeships and the Year of Engineering, is to open the 2019 Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo.

Nusrat will open the Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo and the co-located Seawork exhibition with a key note speech to visitors and exhibitors, followed by a tour of both exhibitions which are now co-located in Southampton’s Mayflower Park.

Nusrat has served as a Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport since January 2018.   She has been actively involved in the Maritime 2050 strategy which was published in January of this year.  A particular focus is on diversity in the marine industry and in March 2019 she announced new funding to encourage more young women to embark on a career at sea.

Last year the minister opened the first meeting of the Clean Maritime Council, which will devise a strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the sector and to improve air quality on and around our waterways, ports and shipping lanes.

The size and breadth of the Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo and Seawork will enable Ms Ghani to reach out to a broad representation of the commercial marine sector and will also give exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to interact again with a member of the government.

Seawork is Europe’s largest commercial marine and workboat exhibition. Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo is Europe’s leading event showcasing the latest equipment and techniques in marine civil engineering and construction.
