Re: Why Spain Never Developed a Strong Merchant Marine

But Spain has big ports like Barcelona, Valencia, Malaga, Cadiz and Algeciras if you wanna call it spain. Maersk has big operations there and MSC is headquartered in Valencia. The pavilion is weak in number of vessels registered because of other cheaper flags.
