The 24th Annual Report prepared by the Maritime Transport Committee covers developments of interest in the field of shipping during 1977 and, wherever possible, the early part of 1978 and sets recent developments within the framework of longer-term trends in international shipping and trade. Chapter I describes international shipping developments during 1977 in the context of national and international shipping policies. Chapters II and III discuss recent trends in shipping demand and supply. Chapter IV shows how the interaction of supply and demand was reflected in the world freight markets during 1977 and the early months of 1978. The report is accompanied by a statistical annex which brings together the principal elements of international seaborne trade and bulk commodities, the world fleet and the various freight markets.
