    Because of concerns about the viability and productivity of U.S. maritime

    industries as well as the future U.S. position in world trade, Congress

    requested Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) to prepare this assessment.

    Congress asked OTA to undertake an analysis and forecast of longterm trends in

    global seaborne trade and maritime technology in relation to the U.S. maritime

    industry. This assessment of Maritime Trade and Technology traces prevailing

    conditions and dominant trends that are important to the way the Federal

    Government assumes its responsibility for developing and implementing policy.

    The report contains analyses of the world outlook for trade, shipping, and

    shipbuilding. It identifies the extent of U. S. participation in these

    enterprises. It analyses the U.S. shipping and shipbuilding industries and

    identifies certain weak and strong attributes. It discusses trends in technology

    as well as in the policies of the United States and of our major trading

    partners. OTA has found that, although there are both healthy and troubled

    segments of the U.S. maritime industries, all sectors are becoming increasingly

    dependent on Federal policy decisions. And, with increasing competition in world

    trade as well as shipping services to carry that trade, intervention by all

    governments is more and more prevalent. OTA received valuable assistance in

    the preparation of this assessment from its advisory panel, which represented

    a cross section of U, S. maritime industry, labor, and user interests. The panel

    provided critiques and advice throughout the assessment and particularly during

    a detailed review of this final report. Other contributors to the assessment

    were contractors and individual consultants who provided valuable analyses of

    specific topics that were integrated into the overall report. The link in this
