Reaction to Conservative election victory


The Conservative party has won the 2019 general election and UK Chamber of Shipping Chief Executive Bob Sanguinetti has given his reaction:

“We congratulate the Prime Minister on his election victory and look forward to working with him and his ministers to ensure we continue to have a world class shipping and maritime sector.

“The UK shipping industry employs over 180,000 people and is the backbone of communities across the country. We are at a crucial time in our history and industry and government need to work together to tackle climate change, invest in skills and training and promote trade with our close neighbours and partners across the globe to ensure economic growth and prosperity.”

The UK Chamber of Shipping is the voice of the UK shipping industry, with nearly 200 members across the UK.
