"The Maritime Administration embraces the Marine Transportation System's present day challenges and looks forward to taking a leadership role in the debate about how the system should look and operate in the future. Simply put, the profound changes facing the marine transportation system represent an extraordinary opportunity to keep this great engine of economic growth producing at peak performance for this and future generations of Americans. Through this new strategic plan, the Maritime Administration believes it can focus its experience and expertise to help the maritime community develop practical, cost-efficient solutions to its challenges--at the international, national and local levels. The Agency will use its modern vision, its determination and plenty of hard work to bring about unprecedented engagement and cooperation across all modes of transportation and with the diverse range of marine transportation stakeholders to plan and implement a better future for the Marine Transportation System. The Maritime Administration is committed to working collaboratively with all stakeholders and transportation sectors and modes to ensure that the United States has a marine transportation network capable of accommodating our current and future needs."
