“-The EU wanted to open the U.S. market by winning so-called "cabotage" rights, the ability to operate inside the U.S. market with no restrictions.”
“Later, English speakers also applied "cabotage" to the rights that allowed domestic airlines to travel within national boundaries but that prevented foreign carriers from doing so.”
“That verb gave rise to the French noun "cabotage," which named trade or transport along a coast.”
“They called the right to conduct such trading "cabotage" too.”
“- the traditional enforcement of "cabotage" first established in the United States in 1789.”
“The contract to build two vessels in Philadelphia for ExxonMobil's SeaRiver Maritime subsidiary which each carry 115,000 tons of cargo are the result of the provisions of our cabotage law, the Jones Act, which dictates that vessels carrying cargo between U.S. ports be constructed in the U.S. and owned and operated by U.S. citizens.”
“Indonesia's business elite will no doubt continue to thrive nevertheless, as even more government intervention is granted to compensate for the loss of competitiveness caused by cabotage.”
“Now that energy is safe, however, there is a danger that the even greater long-term losses from the cabotage law will be forgotten.”
“The U.S. offers a lesson in the costs of cabotage.”
“Our story begins in the early 2000s when the Indonesian National Shipowners Association lobbied for a cabotage law—restricting domestic trade to domestic carriers—to shield them from foreign competition.”
