Turning now to bulk traffic, European coastal shipping is likely to see only moderate growth rates in future. This applies in principle to nearly all bulk, including ore, crude oil, agricultural products etc. 8% annual growth for the rest of bulk commodities.

Britain may have been the first example in history, but Japan, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong are all areas combining insignificant natural endowments with rates of economic growth that have been both high and sustained. The last five countries have had consistently active governmental policies eg in respect of education and training.

Transportation policy discussions should recognize advantages of coastal shipping as energy saving and environmentally safe carriage.
