The three papers of this publication have been prepared as background material for Atlantic conference '75. The author of each paper was asked to focus attention on a particular transportation problem in the Atlantic region. Howard J. Darling discusses ways in which the government should organize itself with respect to marine shipping. Professor F.R. Wilson and associates consider ways in which transportation costs affect the distribution of primary products within the Atlantic provinces. The P.S. Ross & Partners study, concerned specifically with Newfoundland, notes ways in which transportation costs and other factors affect consumer prices. Transportation is an important issue in the Atlantic provinces of Canada and the governors of APEC hope these papers and the discussions which emanate from them at the Atlantic conference '75 will assist all those who must make decisions in these matters. /TRRL/
