Our response to COVID-19 Impact Inquiry



The UK Government intends establish up to ten freeports, which have different customs rules from the rest of the country, as part of its efforts to increase trade, attract investment and reduce regional inequalities.

The Department for International Trade and the International Trade Committee of the House of Commons are now looking for views on the plans.

Do you support the creation of new freeports? How attractive would freeports be to traders and investors? How would they impact your business, organisation or sector? Where should freeports be located in Scotland?

Please complete the template below and send to with the subject line ‘Freeports consultation’.
