    The Domestic Maritime Industry’s Contributions to National Security

    This inaugural podcast, hosted by the American Maritime Partnership President, Mike Roberts, features Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments experts Bryan Clark and Tim Walton, who recently authored a new report titled, Strengthening the U.S. Defense Maritime Industrial Base: A Plan to Improve Maritime Industry’s Contribution to National Security.
    This American Maritime Podcast was recorded just two weeks ago. It highlights key aspects of an important recent study exploring the contribution of the maritime industry to our nation’s security. These subjects were important before today’s novel coronavirus crisis, and will again be important after the crisis passes. Indeed, it is more clear now than ever that the maritime supply chain has a critical role to play in security, preparedness, and safety. The American maritime industry and the over 650,000 workers that support it are committed to keeping American businesses and communities safe and moving forward.
