|UK Marine Industry sees stability returning in international trading|
|Wednesday, 06 February 2013 00:00|
The most recent research from the British Marine Federation (BMF) illustrates that the marine industry is showing stability and has maintained a consistent level during 2011/2012 despite the challenging economic conditions still affecting the whole of the UK. The marine industry performed creditably, with revenue slightly up on 2010/2011 which is the first time a yearly increase has been reported since 2008/9. These results are taken from the recently published BMF Key Performance Indicators report 2011/2012 and the Marine Industry Trends report to November 2012.
Howard Pridding, British Marine Federation CEO, commented: “The BMF, in its centenary year, is more determined than ever in its mission to act as a voice for the industry, to work tirelessly with Government, policy makers and the media to ensure the marine industry is operating in the most favourable business environment possible. The outlook for the UK leisure marine industry is one of quiet confidence despite the ongoing economic difficulties.”
