The introductory article in this feature on Spain is titled "Spanish Renaissance for Shipbuilding, Industry and Trade." It tells how EEC membership and newfound freedom from government intervention have helped propel the Spanish economy to a growth rate of 5 percent and resulted in record trade figures. The 1990s are foreseen as a decade of continuing profitability. The articles that round out the feature are: "Astilleros Espanoles, Europe's Phoenix of Shipbuilding," presenting an interview with the general manager of Astilleros Espanoles, Spain's largest shipbuilder and one that is state-owned; "Specialized Markets for Private Yard," recounting an interview with the director of Union Naval de Levant, the largest of Spain's private shipbuilders; "A New Presence in the Spanish Shipping Community," an interview with the director of Naviera Resmar, a Spanish-flag company with worldwide operations; and "Two Faces of Spanish Shipping," a discussion of the business outlook for Spain's passenger-ship operators.
