THE ROLE OF THE EEC IN WORLD SHIPBUILDING

The shipyards of the enlarged EEC have full order books until 1976/77 and this fortuitous situation has tended to cloud the issue of the competitiveness of the Community's shipyards. The next three years will give the shipbuilders of the Community the breathing space and the opportunity to develop a viable common European shipbuilding policy in order to face the potential over-capacity situation to which the current expansion plans in the rest of the world appear to be leading. Analyses in depth the current structure and economic situation of the shipbuilding industry of each EEC country. The survey incorporates over 40 tables of basic data in four main sections: (1) World Shipping and Shipbuilding analyses historical trends in the growth of shipbuilding and shipping within the major economic/political blocs over the past 20 years; (2) Shipbuilding within the EEC examines in detail the size, structure and output of each individual EEC's shipbuilding industry; (3) EEC Institutions--the principles of the Treaty of Rome touch all industrial activities in the member countries, and shipbuilding and marine engineering industries are no exception. This section examines the institutions and powers which the EEC has to implement and effect a common shipbuilding policy; (4) EEC Shipbuilding Policy attempts to relate the needs of the EEC shipping industries to the output of EEC shipbuilding industries, and examines, in the light of world-wide shipbuilding expansion, the potential size, distribution and structure of the EEC shipbuilding industry in the 1980's and the policies which may be required to justify this potential.
