Description

Excerpt from Foreign Shipbuilding Subsidies: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Merchant Marine of the Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries, House of Representatives, One Hundred Third Congress, First Session; June 30, 1993 Massive Subsidization During the 19805 During the 19805, foreign subsidies increased to massive levels, in response to the worldwide shipbuilding depression that followed the oil crisis of the mid 19705. Foreign governments competed against each other for the biggest shipyard subsidy budgets. The Japanese government created a cartel for its largest shipbuilders, bought up and closed unproductive facilities, funded shipbuilding production and technology improvements, provided soft loans for purchases of Japanese-built ships, and paid Japanese shipowners to scrap their old ships and build new ones in Japanese yards. The South Koran government used its bank to finance the buildup of Korean shipyards and keep them afloat while they lowballed prices, incurred losses, and accumulated billions of dollars worth of debt. European governments pumped money into their shipyard facilities and enticed customers to their yards with cash grants and soft financing.
