Monday, February 14, 2022
Bob Sanguinetti, Chief Executive of Port of Aberdeen said: “We welcome the agreement between the UK and Scottish Governments regarding green freeports in Scotland, and believe the move will allow a level playing field in port operations across the UK.

"A freeport in the North East of Scotland will bolster the region’s offering to the offshore renewables sector, increased freight activity, high-end manufacturing and burgeoning cruise industry. We look forward to reviewing the concept of the proposed green freeport ahead of the application process later this year.”
