  • Abstract:
    When the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) published An Assessment of Maritime Trade and Technology in October 1983, one of its principal findings was that because national interests were not defined and strategies for international negotiation had not been developed, there was at that time no generally accepted U.S. maritime cargo policy. The assessment stressed the profound influence of Federal policy and analyzed several options for congressional consideration, including that of clearly defining U.S. national interests and devising strategies and guidelines for future cargo policy initiatives. Subsequently, Congress requested that OTA conduct additional analyses of cargo policy. As part of its investigation, OTA held a two-day workshop on December 3 and 4, 1984, with participants from the interested parties-shippers, operators, trading firms, and Government. The workshop focused on three topics: 1) the effects of cargo policies now in force; 2) the status of new policies under consideration by the United States and its various trading partners; and 3) costs and benefits of existing, proposed and alternative policies. The workshop was structured around a series of

    presentations, followed by general discussion by participants selected on the basis of interest and expertise in four topic areas: Current Policy Initiatives;, Industry Impacts of Liner Cargo Policies; Industry Impacts of Bulk Cargo Policies; and Alternative Approaches to Cargo Policy. Summaries of panelists' presentations and discussion for each panel are presented in appendix A.
