       脱欧谈判进程即将启动,《里斯本条约》第50条的触发进入倒计时,英国将加强海事关系的目标转向了中国。
 
       “后脱欧时代”,英国原先通过欧盟建立的贸易合作不再生效,海运业处境艰难,必须重新建立新的贸易合作关系。
 
       基于中国的投资潜力,英国海事部门已派遣贸易代表团访问中国。3月底,英国海事组织Maritime UK和英国国际贸易部(以下简称DIT)将带领贸易使团对上海进行为期3天的特殊访问,Maritime UK称,将着力提升英国的世界航运中心地位,为全球海运业提供成套服务。
 
       据悉,贸易代表团由两国的行业和政府高层领导组成,包括航运和港口部长John Hayes、贸易部长Mark Garnier,恰逢“玛丽皇后二号”豪华游轮抵达上海的那天。
 
       此次代表团上海之行与政府建立合作,是英国海运业针对主要国际港口市场的宣传活动项目的第一站。
 
       5月,英国首相预期将访问中国。
 
       Maritime UK主席David Dingle说道:“中英两国是世界海事大国,此次贸易使团活动将加强两国的关系,互惠互利。”
 
       他还提到:“随着脱欧谈判进程的启动,英国步入后脱欧时代。海运业对国家从脱欧中取得成功起着至关重要的作用。扩大出口,与世界各国建立强有力的贸易伙伴关系,海运业紧握着绝佳的机会,使“全球化的大英国”成为现实,我们已经准备好了。”
 
       访问期间,Maritime UK和DIT将与浦东新区政府合作,挖掘双方的海事贸易和投资新契机。
 
       Dingle还说道:“很多英国公司已经与中国展开合作,我们期待与中国的关系开启新的篇章。”
 
       接下来,两位部长将抵达香港,访问香港船东协会。

UK Turns to China to Boost Maritime Ties ahead of Brexit
 
The UK is steering its way to China to foster maritime ties ahead of the looming triggering of Article 50 which will lead to the break up of its unity with the European Union.
 
The split-up will require the UK to establish new trade relations as those made through the EU would not be valid any more potentially leaving the country’s maritime sector “high and dry”.
 
As a result, the UK maritime sector has embarked on a trade mission to China targeting the country’s investment potential. Namely, Maritime UK and the Department of International Trade (DIT) will lead a unique three-day trade mission to Shanghai at the end of March “to promote the UK as The World’s Maritime Centre, providing a complete package for global maritime business,” Maritime UK said.
 
As informed, the trade mission will be attended by senior industry and government leaders from both countries, including Shipping and Ports Minister, John Hayes MP, and Trade Minister, Mark Garnier MP, and it has been timed to coincide with the RMS Queen Mary 2’s visit to Shanghai during its East Asian tour.
 
Through partnership with government, the Shanghai trade mission is the first in a programme of international promotional activity to key target markets identified by industry.
 
The trade mission comes ahead of the UK Prime Minister’s scheduled visit to China in May.
 
“The UK and China are two of the world’s leading maritime powers, and this trade mission is designed to further strengthen relations between our two countries, delivering benefits for both markets,“ says David Dingle CBE, Chairman of Maritime UK.
 
“As the UK triggers Article 50 and looks to a future outside the European Union, the maritime sector has a unique and critical role in ensuring the country makes a success of Brexit. With a resolve to increase exports and sign ambitious trade deals with countries across the world the maritime industry has a unique opportunity to make ‘Global Britain’ a reality, and it is ready to do so.”
 
During the visit Maritime UK and the DIT will be collaborating with the Pudong New Area to identify new maritime trade and investment opportunities for both the UK and China.
 
”A significant number of British companies are already working with China and we are looking forward to opening new chapters in these relationships, and beginning others,” Dingle added.
 
Following the Shanghai visit, the Maritime UK Chairman and Shipping and Ports Minister will visit Hong Kong to meet with the Hong Kong Shipowners Association.
