The 20th Annual Report prepared by the Maritime Transport Committee covers developments of interest in the field of shipping during 1973 and, wherever possible, the early part of 1974 and sets recent developments within the framework of longer-term trends in international shipping and trade. Chapter I describes international shipping developments during 1973 in the context of national and international shipping policies. Chapters II and III discuss recent trends in shipping demand and supply and Chapter IV shows how the interaction of supply and demand was reflected in the world freight markets during 1973 and the early months of 1974. The Special Chapter V is a review of recent work carried out by the Maritime Transport Committee concerning the role of shipping in the national economies of OECD Member countries. It considers the shipping industries in national accounts and balance of payments and discusses the extent of available information on the subject.
