The author contends that the opportunities for the marine sector in the Philippines are closer to coming to fruition. The author had visited many shipyards in the Philippines and talked to ship owners and operators, manning agents, a port operators and many senior naval and coastguard people. The author sees many locally owned, smaller shipyards moving effectively into the export market for vessels such as barges, rugs, landing craft, passenger and fishing boats. He claims the Colorado Shipyard in Cebu is building a cargo ship for the Society Islands.
