#Ports&Shipping - The south Wales Port of Milford Haven, Britain’s biggest energy port, has launched a survey to gather views on its roles and operations as a leading regional business.
The poll, which the Port says is critical to understanding issues faced by its many and diverse stakeholders, is a simple online questionnaire that takes no more than ten minutes to complete.
The Port of Milford Haven is a Trust Port with no shareholders, and its profits must be reinvested within the Port to ensure it remains a strong business at the heart of the local economy for future generations. As the Port’s Chief Executive, Alec Don, explained, a clear understanding of all stakeholder views is a key way in which the Port can ensure it remains accountable.
“The broad scale of our operations, from providing safe navigation for all river users, to supporting and developing strong and diverse businesses across our estates, means that what we do touches on the lives and livelihoods of many people and businesses both locally and regionally,” said Alec.
“It is our duty to listen to all views, be they about our own plans as a business or the numerous ways in which what we do impacts on others,” he added. “As importantly, it helps us build and improve relationships with local organisations, businesses and interest groups with a stake in what happens on and around this Waterway.”
A key finding from last year’s survey was that businesses and residents in Pembrokeshire welcomed the Port of Milford Haven’s role as a driver of the local economy. “Nearly all respondents set great store by a busy port’s ability to create opportunity for local business to emerge and grow,” said Alec. “We are working hard on projects such as Pembroke Dock Marine and Milford Waterfront to bring greater opportunities for local business. Engaging widely, during what will be exciting times, is very important for us.”
