Harbour has 'brought £61m to economy'

By Staff Reporter

Warrenpoint Harbour has generated over £61m of gross value added (GVA) for the economy over the last decade, according to a report.

The Co Down harbour said the economic impact assessment demonstrated that it was now the second-largest port in the province.

The report was carried out by economist Ryan Hogg, alongside harbour board member Richard Johnston, an associate director in the Ulster University's economic policy centre. It described 2016 as a "record year" in which the port handled 3.5m tonnes of freight.
