The author reflects on the current state of the Australian maritime industry. He claims that the economic boom in the trading partner countries of China and India has resulted in the construction of major new ports and terminals in Australia to facilitate trading activities. He cites, however, that the conspiracy between the Maritime Union of Australia and the previous administration has resulted in the reduction of the country's flagged merchant fleet by around 80%.
