National Strategy for the Marine Transportation System: Channeling the Maritime Advantage, 2017-2022 [open pdf - 1MB]
"In July 2008, the cabinet-level U.S. Committee on the MTS [Marine Transportation System] (CMTS) approved the National Strategy on the MTS: A Framework for Action (2008 Strategy). The 2008 Strategy identified five priority areas (Capacity; Safety and Security; Environmental Stewardship; Resilience and Reliability; and Finance and Economics) and 34 actions that provided the foundation for subsequent CMTS priority work plans and identified new and emerging issues. The CMTS member agencies created Integrated Action Teams (IATs) to address the 34 actions, and 27 of the actions have been addressed or completed. The remaining items were either broadly written, have been combined with other CMTS work plan activities, or carried over to other emerging issues. Appendix I provides a summary of these actions and steps taken to date."
