Free trade zone to be discussed at next North Lincolnshire Ambassador Programme event

A breakfast meeting is taking place on 14 November to bring businesses together to discuss creating a free trade zone in North Lincolnshire.

The event, taking place at San Pietro in Scunthorpe, will look to bring together businesses leaders to help direct the region’s policy on what and where a free trade zone would be once the UK leaves the European Union.

A guest speaker will give an oversight into how a free trade zone would benefit North Lincolnshire and what it could offer the indigenous business community.

Round table discussions will then take place based on key questions:

  • What is a free trade zone?
  • Where should the free trade zone be?
  • What incentives should be considered for the zone?
  • Should the free trade zone have restrictions?
  • What sectors should be included?
  • How do we, as a collective, promote and lobby for one in North Lincolnshire?

Following the event, North Lincolnshire Council in collaboration with the North Lincolnshire Ambassador Programme will seek to generate a public and private sector backed policy document that will be delivered direct to government, and seek to raise the aspirations of the region. We look forward to you attending and a further invite with more details will follow shortly.
