Socio - economic study of French channel ports
The APLM will in parallel to Torbay Harbour launch a socio economic study where the objective will be to assess the direct and indirect employment impacts that small and medium sized harbours have on their surrounding communities. The study will look at the economic benefits from existing and future sectors in the French Channel ports. The importance will be to produce a baseline that can be used for the promotion of local and regional ports as future beneficiaries for investments and raise awareness amongst decision makers of the benefits that these ports can bring. The template for the study is being shared with Torbay that is a leading a complimentary exercise on behalf of the UK partner ports.
