The Great South West is a Pan-Regional Partnership covering the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset. It aims to promote the region’s ‘blue and green’ assets, as part of its ambition to become the ‘UK’s Natural Powerhouse’, and the first region to become net zero.
The Great South West is partnering with Maritime UK SW to help scope the priorities for the region’s marine and maritime economy including how the South West can contribute to the Government’s top priorities, including increasing inward investment and exports, establishing the country as a science superpower, and transitioning to net zero.
