ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with Lars Olsson, chairman of the Passenger Shipping Association (PSA). Olsson informed that the PSA is aiming to establish itself as a lobbying body for the ferry and cruise industry. When asked about the concern, he said that one of the concern is about proposals for restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions, which will increase their costs. He stated that ferry passenger numbers have fallen dramatically since the introduction of the no-frills airlines.
