Identify present and future trade relationships between Alaska and Washington. Identify characteristics of the distribution system. Suggest innovations needed to improve the performance of the physical distribution system. Considering above, determine the composition of future trade. Research on trade flows, trade interrelationships, critical impediments to trade and means for minimizing these impediments was completed. Publications were developed for all these subject areas. The final aspect of the project was an analysis of proposed natural gas transmission systems on future trade flows between Alaska and Washington. The development of an input-output model for Alaska's economy, one of the accomplishments of this project, provided the structural basis for an economic analysis of export market possibilities for forest products produced in Interior Alaska.
