The Baltic Exchange hosted a lunch focusing on the London maritime community this week.
In a speech given by Baltic Exchange Chairman, Duncan Dunn, he focused on the historical support that the Baltic has given the wider shipping community in the UK through the association Maritime London, noting:
“We believe that there is still work to do about the UK Statuary Residence Test, the number of days counting, which are half those on the continent. There is also the uncertainty that Brexit brings, having a voice at government enables us to address the concerns about regulation, taxation and visa issues. All of which contribute to a workplace that can attract overseas talent.”
