The report concludes that U.S. maritime policy should be more supportive of international trade but highlights improvements in policies fostering U.S. participation in the LNG trade through MARAD’s involvement in the licensing of LNG deepwater ports and the agency’s efforts to increase the number of U.S. mariners aboard LNG vessels.
