April event

Many thanks to the 120 or so members and attendees who came along to Souths to hear from Professor Roy Green about some potential futures for the Port of Newcastle.  There has been a number of stories in the press about the issues raised by Roy Green during his presentation at the Newcastle Institute and through the work done prior to this.

Attendees at the event will recall that Roy responded to an audience question, saying that he would make his presentation available. True to his word, this has been done and you can see a copy of Roy’s presentation in pdf format by clicking here.

You might also be interested to have a look at the video shown on the night that looked at the history of containerisation and why this is such an important adjunct to the growth of global trade.  You can see the video below.

There has now been a growing amount of press and questions about the circumstances surrounding the possibility of a container terminal in Newcastle.  The links below will take you to some of the published pieces.
