International Chamber of Shipping presents a global trade study which outlines the protectionist trade policies being implemented by governments worldwide.

Prepared for International Chamber of Shipping by Professor Craig VanGrasstek, Harvard Kennedy School of Government, with Dr Ben Shepherd, Developing Trade Consultants, the study also shows how each country analysed can identify and reduce their restrictive measures to lower the cost of doing business and increase their share in global maritime trade, which was estimated at US$14 trillion in 2019.

Key features of the study
• A Protectionism in Maritime Economies (PRIME) score, based on factors such as management and licensing rules, government integrity, and tariffs, that allows general comparison by aggregating the different measures of a country’s trade policies.
• Detailed country profiles covering all national economies assessed in the research.
• Full research methodology, references and data.


The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) is the principal international trade association for the shipping industry, representing shipowners and operators in all sectors and trades. ICS membership comprises national shipowners' associations in Asia, Europe and the Americas whose member shipping companies operate over 80% of the world's merchant tonnage.

Established in 1921, ICS is concerned with all technical, legal, employment affairs and policy issues that may affect international shipping.

ICS represents shipowners with the various intergovernmental regulatory bodies that impact on shipping, including the International Maritime Organization.

ICS also develops best practices and guidance, including a wide range of publications and free resources that are used by ship operators globally.
