Australia'sresourcesboom.Australianbulkportsareundergoingunprecedentedgrowthasthecountryis continuing to benefit from the resources boom and ongoing escalating demand for coal and iron ore, particularly from China and India. This demand is expected to continue as these economies grow. Australia's Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics reports that the economies of India and China, whichaccountedforlessthanonetenthoftheworldGDPin1990,representedonefifthin2010andby 2030 are expected to account for one third of the world GDP, exceeding that of USA, Japan and ASEAN. Australia's iron ore exports are projected to increase to almost 476 million tonnes (mt) in 2012 representing 40 percent of global iron ore exports. Similarly, growth in coal exports is occurring with metallurgicalcoalexportsofapproximately165mtandthermalcoaltonnagestoexceed155mtin2012.

New Zealand Productivity Commission. The New Zealand Productivity Commission has released its draft paper on International Freight Transport Services. This follows an earlier review by the New Zealand Ministry of Economic Development into market power and its possible abuse by port companies.

The six port companies under investigation were Auckland, Tauranga, Napier, CentrePort (Wellington),LytteltonPortandPortOtago.TheCommissionfoundthatonlytheportofNapierrecordeda positive result for the period which suggested that the ports were less effective at covering their cost of capital compared with other former statutory authorities. One of the issues raised by the Commission related to investment decisions in particular the institutions, markets and planning processes in which investment decisions take place. A greater level of central government guidance was called for and the need for coordinated decisionmaking particularly in relation to road and rail networks. One of the impediments found was the fact that infrastructure is provided by multiple levels of government and although a National Infrastructure Plan does exist there is no requirement under the Resource Management Act 1991 that the plan be taken into account by local or regional authorities when making planningdecisions.

8.MISCELLANEOUSFROM,FORANDABOUTMARITIMEECONOMISTS
8.1.FoodforThought
8.1.1.Environmentalregulationexposesthepolicychallengesofthefuture;somethoughtsand personalviews
The European Parliament is currently discussing the amendment of Directive 1999/32. Fuels used in MemberStatesterritorialwatersshouldnotexceedthelimitof0.1%asfrom2015.Exceptionshavebeen consideredforpassengershipsengagedinsometradestill2025.Thefinaldecisionisstillpending. This development is interesting as many and fundamental questions are raised. Almost all related studiesderivetheresultthatthebenefitsoutofacleanairpolicyoutweighthecosts.Consequentlythe first question is, if the limit of the territorial waters addresses the needs and yields the desired benefits. ThelimitissimilartotheonesetbytheIMOforSECAareas.IftheMemberStatesoftheEU,partiesalsoto the IMO and MARPOL Conventions, do not declare their adjacent seas as SECA, then a question of enforcementisraised.ThePortStateControl(PSC)caneffectivelyenforcealimitthatisderivedoutofan IMOinstrument(specificallyMARPOLinthiscase).Moreover,thereareissuesrelatedtotheavailabilityof thecleanerbunkersaswellastotheassociatedcosts.Theconditionsoftheargumentthatalevelledfield is required for all ship operators in Europe, therefore the SECA areas should be expanded around the Europeancoastline,arenotsatisfied,iftherearedifferentapplicationlimitsandenforcementcapabilities.

Theabovequestionsaredeeplypoliticalyetthehealthbenefitsoutofanypolicyprevailoveranyinterests of industrial actors and costs. It is interesting though to see, who is supporting all these policies and developments. Environmentalists and other lobbies with similar interests proclaim such policies. Manufacturersofequipmentsupportthesepoliciesastheyservetheirprivateprofitseekingmeans.Other stakeholders,suchasthemetalworkerssupporttheinitiativeastheyhopethatsomeshipbuildingactivity willbeattracted. Taking into account all the above, I would like to share some personal views. The clean air policies seemtohaveapositiveimpactintermsofexternalities.Thereforetheyconsistonagoodsetofregulation. However, they are incomplete, unless neighbouring third countries adopt similar rules and they are imposed through the appropriate IMO instruments. Even if ships fuelled by cleaner fuels serve the northern Mediterranean littoral regions, then a substantial part of pollution from other nonEU littoral regions will dilute the effectiveness of the strict environmental legislation. Moreover, ships that do not comply,couldunloadtheircargointhirdcountriesports,andthenbytruck(mainly)someifnotallparcels could be transported to the EU regions. The externalities in the third countries might be high, yet the increaseoftheportactivitycouldbalancethecosts.However,thismightresultanincreasedflowoftrucks fromthirdcountriesintotheEUjeopardizingalsoeffortstoshiftcargoesfromlandtothesea.Thecritical factorforsuchamodalshiftisthecostofcompliance,bunkersandgenerallythegeneralizedcostofthe logisticsalternatives.Ifthecompliancecostishighthenitispossibletoexperiencemanycasesofviolation oftheruleorofchangeoftheportofcall.Inbothcases,thefinalresulttotheenvironmentisdetrimental. The issue of the enforcement is also critical. The introduction of strict environmental rules out of the current PSC framework is doomed to fail. The PSC safety net is so far proven efficient, and cooperation amongAdministrationscouldamplifyfurthertheeffectivenessoftheregulations.Alistofshamecouldbe

Besides, it seems that the issue of the representation of the EU at the IMO becomes a hot potato. It might be an unpleasant issue for all parties to discuss; it is definitely controversial yet a new modus operandishouldbeconferred.Environmentalpoliciesrequireaconcertedactionfromasmanycountriesas possibleinordertobeeffective;policiesatnationallevelcannotbeaseffectiveunlesstheyarestricterand technically compatible, in order to avoid cases, such as carbon leakage. There is no such thing as a mandatoryconsensus,yetthepeoplesofallStateswillenjoythebenefits,andtheyshouldsplitthecosts. So,howcouldonesplitthesecostsinafairandtransparentway?TheEUshouldguaranteeatlastafair solution, and so far it seems that it does not, as skepticism about the efficiency of European bodies at variouslevelsandfieldsprevails. The reaction of the maritime community was in many cases not very effective or productive too. The industry failed to prove that owners and operators would finally pay the compliance bill and this could affectthequalityoftheshippingserviceinthecurrentdirefinancialconditions,whencapitalsarescarce. The persistence of ignoring the evolution of European maritime policy visvis the IMO development resultedtounpleasantdeadlocksandbitterskirmisheswithotherstakeholders.Finally,thepublicimageof the industry was damaged and this makes harder to pursue interests at a political level, to tempt the sympathyofthewiderpublicandtoattractyoungandsmartpeopleasmotivatedemployees. Concluding,environmentalregulationofrelativelyminorimportancecouldhaveasubstantialimpacton theindustryandatthesametimetorevealthenecessarystepstowardseffectivepolicies.Icannotseeany stakeholderchallengingthegoaltowardscleanair(andgenerallyanysoundenvironmentalgoal),despite thefactthatsomewillargueaboutthetechnicalissuesandtheprocedures.Moreover,Icannotseehowa newsetofmarineenvironmentprotectionpolicieswillemerge,unlessthekeyquestionsoftherelationsof the EU with the IMO and of the enforcement are resolved. Finally, I strongly suggest that policy makers should estimate the cost of any option or decision and to identify clearly the winners and the losers before opting for one of them. At this point, the work of academics and of researchers might be indispensable.

8.1.2.Environmentalsocialresponsibilityinshipping:Isitheretostay?
The last decade has witnessed an increase in the consideration of environmental factors in shipping, mostly as a consequence of regulation and media attention. Policy measures and the threat of public indictmenthaveactedaspowerfulincentivesforshippingcompanies,especiallyinlinershippingandinthe liquidbulksegments,totakegreaterconsiderationofenvironmentalimpactsintheirinvestmentstrategies and operations. These developments are sometimes dismissed as temporary or motivated only by marketing considerations. But if this is maybe true for some companies, the shipping business is slowly changing. Government approaches to environmental challenges have recognised the necessity of creating environmentalawareness,ofprovidingincentivesforgreenershippingandstimulatinginnovation,sothat policyhasshiftedtowardsacombinationofcommandandcontrolandmarketbasedmeasures.Thisisclear

Thepolicyfocusontheenvironmenthascometogetherwitharenewedinterestofsocietyontheissue. Consumers are increasingly considering the environmental footprint of products in their purchasing decisions(seePickettBakerandOzaki,2008),andnewmarketsegmentshavebeendevelopedthatsupport sustainable sourcing and help companies in procurement decisions (Meehan and Bride, 2011). Initiatives suchasWallMartgreenlabelortheIKEAEcoScorecards,justtomentionafew,arelikelytomodifyhow production,marketingandsourcingwillbeperformedinthefuture.Althoughtheunderstandingofgreen consumerbehaviourisstillcontroversial(Young,etal.2010;PeattieandCrane,2005),thereseemtobea distincttrendtowardsgreenerpurchasing(HuangandRust,2011;FlattersandWillmott,2010). CorporateSocialResponsibility(CSR)andenvironmentalawarenessisincreasinginshippingbeyondthe levels of avoiding detention and fines as a result of noncompliance. Companies have understood that movingtowardsamoresustainableoperationsandsourcingmaygrantthemthefavourofshippers,and allowhighermarginsandeventuallygeneratecompetitiveadvantagesimilarlytowhatishappeninginthe logistics segments (Etsy and Winston, 2006). Companies have also realisedthat CSR and environmentally awareoperationsoftendonotnecessarilytranslateinhigherproductioncostsbutareabletoevenlimitor reducecosts. Alargenumberofemissionreducingtechnologiesandoperationalmeasures,forexample,appeartobe atleastcostneutralingeneralandinshipping(IPCC2001;UNDP,UNDESAandWEC2000;Eide,etal.2011). Someemissionreductiontechnologiesandoperationalmeasurescouldgrantshipownerssubstantialfuel savingsthatwouldallowrepayingcapitalcostsinarelativelyshortperiodoftime.Especiallyifbunkerfuels keeponrising,theimportanceoffindingalternativeandmoreefficientwaystopropelashipwillbecome moreimportant.

Furtherexamplesarerelatedtofuels,suchasLNGorbiofuelsformaritimeuse,ortechnologies,suchas fuel cells or waste heat recovery systems. Some of these technologies and operational measures can contribute to saving fuel costs substantially, and can benefit the company bottom line depending of fuel price levels (Eide, et al. 2011). If it is true that some of the costs associated with new technologies are hidden,andtheuptakeofnewtechnologiesmaybelimitedbylockineffectsoruncertaintywithrespectto the costs and effects of the technology (Acciaro, et al. 2012), other effects are well documented (Chryssakis,etal.2012). The reluctance of shipowners to implement new cost saving technologies, because of what is often referredtoasbarrierstoenergyefficiency(Sorrel,etal.2004),isawelldocumentedphenomenoninmost industries but underresearched in the shipping economics and management literature (Acciaro, et al. 2012).Althoughsomeofthebarriersappeartobetechnicalandseemtoinfluencedirectlytheuptakeof emission reduction measures (Acciaro, et al. 2012), others are of a managerial nature (Johansson and

Much of the research in these areas is motivated surely by the quest for increased efficiency in ship operationsandtheneedtocomplywithupcomingregulationthatwillrequireshipstoreducethelevelsof sulphurandnitrogenoxides.Weseesurelyinthelinershippingsectortheincreaseofinitiatives,proposal ofnewdesigns,marketingcampaignsandchangeofattitudeinsourcingaimingatgreeningthecorporate profile of the company. Many companies also in the bulk shipping sector are actively pursuing environmental sustainable strategies. They include funding or participating in research and innovation projectsaimingattestingordevelopingmoresustainableconcepts,investingreenerdesignsornewfuel types. For many companies there seem to be the desire of establishing themselves as paragons of environmental compliance.
