This report has been prepared for the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA), the trade association representing the national shipowners’ associations of the EU and Norway.
The study aims to provide an understanding of the economic value generated by the EU shipping industry, both directly and through its interactions with other parts of the economy.
As well as analysing the contribution of the industry, the study reviews the recent development of the EU shipping fleet; estimates the impact of state aid measures permitted under the Community guidelines on state aid; and outlines the contribution of maritime academies in training seafarers.
