THE DOMESTIC RESOURCE COSTS OF ESTABLISHING/EXPANDING A NATIONAL FLEET

It has been openly advocated by UNCTAD, and widely accepted by the nations concerned, that developing countries should aim at expanding their own shipping fleets and at carrying a higher proportion of their trade. The formula suggested by UNCTAD for the division of trade is 40: 40: 20; i.e. a national line should be entitled to 40% national export cargo, 40% national import cargo and 20% crosstrading rights. The purpose of this paper is to suggest economic criteria that can be used as a policy tool in decision-making regarding the establishing/expanding of national fleets. Implementation of UNCTAD'S recommendation may have great impact on shipping.
