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.
