LONG BEACH, Calif. — The maritime industry is voicing concerns that policy initiatives to boost port security could slow the flow of goods and increase costs.
Speakers at the Maritime Security Expo, held Nov. 18 and 19 at the Long Beach Convention Center, stressed the need for the maritime industry and government to work together to achieve a balance between trade and security issues. With the world’s economies gripped by financial turmoil, speakers said the potential costs of implementing an increasingly complicated web of regulations could impair global commerce.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
