In this article, the author discusses the cabotage system that is being implemented in the global maritime industry, particularly in Australia, Great Britain and the U.S. He cites that the system has resulted in the deterioration of the maritime sector as the players became complacent because of the protection they expect from the government during challenging times. He claims that the apprehensions by investors and financiers on the Australian Maritime Union has hindered the financial and environmental potential of coastal shipping in the country.
