Future Ports: Wales Vision

How ports can help deliver Wales' coming transformation 

This is our overarching vision for our network of ports in South Wales – Swansea, Port Talbot, Barry, Cardiff and Newport.

Here, we show how our ports have a major role to play in helping Wales address the big challenges posed by decarbonisation and digitisation – and show how the ports allow us to turn those challenges into hugely significant economic, social and environmental opportunities. 

To do that, we have set out four big port-centric ‘missions’ that will help us create a dynamic approach to the issues, and build a new growth coalition with our partners.

Here, we are focusing on what is changing.  But some things will stay the same: our commitment to connect Wales to the global economy, and Keep Britain Trading.

We have set out our vision as a one page ‘vision map’. This video will talk you through it.
