In June 2018, President Trump released Executive Order 13840, which outlined the Administration's ocean policy to advance the economic, security, and environmental interests of United States. The Executive Order specifically calls for federal agencies to facilitate the economic growth of coastal communities and promote ocean industries. While not specifically mentioned in the Executive Order, the marine transportation system underpins vital components of ocean industries, including aspects of the Blue Economy.
