Recently UNCTAD published its annual maritime report. The comments below highlight notable themes.
The UNCTAD Review of Maritime Transport 2017, obtainable for free on the organisation’s website (link below) was published at the end of October this year. As in previous editions, it provides useful comprehensive coverage of many aspects of the global maritime scene, including seaborne trade, the world fleet, freight markets, ports, legal and regulatory issues and maritime connectivity for developing countries.
Among especially interesting comments, global seaborne trade is viewed as having good growth prospects over several years ahead. This contrasts with some quite pessimistic predictions seen elsewhere.
Well done to every London Student who passed their exams.
We are delighted to offer our Congratulations to those who have won prizes, and also to those who have completed their Foundation Diploma or their Advanced Diploma or their PQE.
