Competivity aspects on Romanian maritime transports


  • Dragan Cristian

    (Constanta Maritime University)


In general, the shipping industry, complies mostly to competition rules. The only exceptions are the technical cooperation agreements between line shipping companies that are grouped in consortiums or alliances. Although the maritime industry is perceived, overall, as a competitive market, some components of the industry have a doubtful reputation in respecting the antitrust rules. Anticompetitive agreements were sanctioned by the European commission and competition authorities, especially the pool type arrangements that are so common in irregular maritime transport market. When it comes to Romania, the international orientation of maritime industry in our country necessitates the adaptation to the market economy imposed requirements. Considering the integration in the European Union, Romanian naval industry has to increase “the capacity to resist to the competition pressure and to the market forces which comes from the inside of the European Union” - as it is stipulated in-Accession Partnership with Romania - (2002/92 EC). In order to realize this, Romanian naval construction has to obtain a powerful investment support consisting in technology and equipments in order to increase its efficiency as closer as possible to the naval industry of the countries which are part of the European Union
