Johnson will announce the investment plan in the closing speech of the Conservative Party's annual convention. The plan will invest 160 million pounds (about 208 million US dollars), which will be used to build seaports and a new generation of wind turbine manufacturing plants. The project will create a total of 60,000 jobs, and the newly built offshore wind farm will have a capacity of 10,000 megawatts.
