£500 million a year and 14 thousand jobs rely on it.

Now Cornwall's a step closer to shaping the future of its maritime economy.

Officials have backed a new plan to boost industry, protect the environment and attract visitors.

Peter Childs is managing director at A&P in Falmouth.

He says one thing is key:
