Review of Maritime Transport at 50

Comments Off on Review of Maritime Transport at 50


UNCTAD’s Review of Maritime Transport is 50 years old this year.  To mark the 50th anniversary, UNCTAD published a Special Issue, 50 Years of Review of Maritime Transport, 1968-2018: Reflecting on the past, exploring the future. The issue showcased UNCTAD RMT research, analysis and data with interesting and diverse perspectives, over the past, the present and the future and was published 23 November 2018. MRBTC assisted UNCTAD in developing this publication by providing content (Chapter 4: “How Is the Future of Maritime Transport Expected to Evolve?” on pages 55-81), and editorial support (incorporating the work of seven guest essayists and Chapter 2 by Peter Faust).
