The HELM report – PwC Economy of the Sea Barometer – examines the challenges and opportunities in taking an integrated approach to the oceans: the practicalities that need to be addressed and the size of the prize if this can be achieved. The report also provides a snapshot of the state of play in the maritime industries, and between maritime nations.
