Speakers included Louis Laurent Dupont from Marseille and the Association of Ports – Towns who presented the innovative findings of a recent study on the strategic options for the future development of medium and large sized port towns in France.  Louis was followed by a UK speaker from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s infrastructure development division, Adam Littlejohn who spoke about an academic investigative study into the nature of the United Kingdom’s Maritime asset.  He spoke about changing government policies, the need for a clear national plan in next 50 to 100 years, redressing investment backlogs, making policy makers better understand the investment lag and benefits from investments.
