2 Agenda Global issues and trends affecting the world and U.S. economic outlooks What about China? Implications for sea trade in the U.S. Conclusions 2

3 Key Global Issues and Trends Will higher oil prices derail the recovery? Will the dollar crash? China: Hard or soft landing? New and important players? NO - Not at $70-75 NO, but... SOFT YES, A FEW... 3

4 Has world economic growth peaked? ---yes, but The world economy is in recession when real GDP growth is below 2%. 5 (Percent change, real GDP)

5 Container trade normally grows faster than the world economy. This year should be very healthy GDP 3.4% TEUs 8.2% World TEUs 5

6 Asia is 2/3 of global container trade. TRANS-ATLANTIC ATLANTIC 5.4 million TEU 5.7% Growth ASIA-EUROPE 12.1 million TEU 12.2% Growth TRANS-PACIFIC 19.3 million TEU 10.8 % Growth INTRA-ASIA ASIA 26.2 million TEU (including Australia, Indian Subcontinent and Middle East) 10.0% Growth World Container Trade Flow 2005 E-W = 43% Intra Asia = 31% 6

7 Real GDP Growth Is Uneven Across the World and emerging markets grow fastest NAFTA Other Americas Western Europe Emerging Europe Japan Other Asia Mideast & Africa

8 The U.S. expansion is entering a new phase. The U.S. economy has strong momentum entering % in the first quarter Business investment is now leading the expansion, supported by record profits and global market growth. Further dollar depreciation is expected, boosting exports. Home sales and construction will decline as affordability deteriorates; hurricane rebuilding will cushion the fall. Consumer spending growth will slow in response to higher interest rates and a cooling housing market. A Fast Start and A Slow Finish in

9 The U.S. Economic Expansion Will Slow. 8 (Annual percent change, 2000 dollars) (Unemployment rate - %) Real GDP Growth Unemployment Rate 9

10 A Record U.S. Current Account Deficit over $800 billion as far as the eye can see ,000 (Billions of dollars) Current Account Deficit Deficit as % of GDP 10

11 U.S. Imports are fueling the huge current account deficit. (Billions of dollars) , United States Western Europe Japan Asia exc. Japan 11

12 The U.S. dollar will depreciate further steady declines through 2008, due to huge current account deficits. 1.3 (2000=1.00) Industrial Countries Developing Countries

13 Real U.S. exports and imports reflect the business cycle and exchange rates. (Year-over-year percent change) Real Exports Real Imports 13

14 Asia is supporting world growth. Inflation remains under 4% in most Asian economies exceptions include Indonesia, India, and the Philippines. High saving rates mean these economies will continue to be capital exporters - investors in ports and transportation infrastructure. China will have a soft landing. Exchange rates across Asia will rise as part of a global trade adjustment. India is positioning for an economic take off. 14

15 India could align with China and create a powerhouse from toys to high tech. India and China Real GDP Growth Rates India Real GDP China Real GDP $1.3 trillion GDP 8%/year total TEU growth to % GDP growth this year (2006) 1.1 billion population is growing 1.5% annually 15

16 China s momentum is hard to slow down, but the government is trying soft landing most likely Real Per Capita GDP (2004$) $171 $964 Real GDP as $ of US Level, 2004$ 3% 14% Real GDP growth in previous 20 years 5.3% 8.6% Population (millions) 981 1,300 Trade's share of GDP 15% 85% Number of Supermarkets 0 70,000 Current Account Surplus ($ billions) Agriculture's share of GDP 30% 15% Urbanization 20% 33% 16

17 China s container exports continue to grow at double-digit rates NAFTA s share has hit 45%. 40,000,000 35,000,000 TEU exports climb by 14.3% in ,000,000 25,000,000 20,000,000 15,000,000 10,000,000 5,000, NAFTA World Total 17

18 Mexico joins China s million-teu club China/HK - Largest Export Markets United States 12,084, % Japan 3,778, % Mexico 2,798, % South Korea 1,862, % Germany 1,554, % United Kingdom 1,447, % Mexico already imports 1.5 million full TEUs from China (2006). Mexico is the fastest-growing large market for China/HK. 18

19 71% of North America s TEU imports from the Far East come from China, but only 36% of the value. 80% 70% North American Imports 60% 10.8 Million TEUs 50% 40% 30% 20% $213 Billion 10% 0% China Share of Total Far East TEUs China Share of Total Far East $$ 19

21 But look at China s penetration of new market segments. 80% 70% 60% Office and Computing Equipment 50% 40% 30% 20% Semi-conductors, Electronic parts, etc. 10% 0% Semi-conductors, Electronic Tubes,etc Office and Computing Machinery 21

22 China Economic Summary There appears to be little risk at the macroeconomic level. Even with a soft landing we will see growth in excess of 8% GDP through The exchange rate will revalue smoothly. The financial markets, although not exactly stable, are also not seriously in danger of toppling. So long as Foreign Direct Investment continues, we will see the continuation of an export driven economy. 22

23 Agenda Global issues and trends affecting the world and U.S. economic outlooks What about China? Implications for sea trade in the U.S. Conclusions 23

24 As China expands its markets, the US becomes less important. US Share of China's Container Exports 40,000, % 35,000, % 30,000, % TEUs 25,000,000 20,000,000 15,000, % 20.0% 15.0% US Share of China's Exports 10,000, % 5,000, % World Total United States US Share of China Exports 0.0% 24

25 The USEC gained share of imports from the Far East in 2002, but the USWC has resumed it increase in share. US Coastal Shares of TEU Imports from the Far East 54.0% 52.0% 50.0% 48.0% 46.0% 44.0% 42.0% USEC Share USWC Share 25

26 The USWC will hold on to its 53% share of imported Chinese containers shipped to the U.S. Unless China & Hong Kong Containers to the USWC 14,000,000 12,000,000 10,000,000 Full TEUs 8,000,000 6,000,000 4,000,000 2,000, US West Coast United States 26

27 ... Mexico can implement this idea, to compete for US imports from the Far East. Container volumes will continue to grow. USWC port and rail congestion could return. All-water service cost may go up. There are wrinkles to iron out. 3.0 more days at sea (at 18 knots) 27

28 US container imports from Latin America will rise to equal imports from Europe. 18,000,000 16,000,000 14,000,000 12,000,000 TEUs 10,000,000 8,000,000 6,000,000 4,000,000 2,000, Latin Amer (Not Mexico) Far East European Union 28

29 US imports from Latin America will top 2.5 million this year (full TEUs). US TEUs Imported from Latin America % 4% 4% 4% 2% 1% Brazil 29% 8% Caribb Basin 15% 25% Brazil and Caribbean containers come through the USEC. Brazil Caribbean Basin Central America Chile Venezuela Argentina Peru Colombia Other West Coast of South America Other East Coast of South America 29

30 US container exports are dominated by the Far East and are about equal to Europe and Latin America. 3,500,000 The US exports only 1 container for every 5 imported from the Far East. 3,000,000 2,500,000 Full TEUs 2,000,000 1,500,000 1,000, ,000 Import/Export Ratio Far East 5 Latin America 2 Europe Latin America no Mex Far East 2 European Union 30

31 Agenda Global issues and trends affecting the world and U.S. economic outlooks What about China? Implications for sea trade in the U.S. Conclusions 31

32 Bottom Line World economic growth will remain robust in 2006, but will slow by year end. Enjoy it now. Emerging markets of Asia and Europe will experience the strongest growth; the Eurozone and Japan will lag behind. A growing trade deficit will further weaken the dollar, by 10-30% through China s currency adjustment will be gradual. The U.S. and Far East (China) will expand their imbalanced trade, with imports swamping exports. While transpacific container trade continues to climb, north-south trade will grow in importance. No recession is likely in 2006 or
