Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the panel II on the topic of the relationship of the 1982 Convention to energy and economic development in the United States. Panel II, titled "Energy and Economic Development" was opened by Paul L. Kelly, a respected spokesman for the US offshore industry. In introducing ADM James D. Watkins, Mr. Kelly noted that the former Chief of Naval Operations as well as former Secretary of Energy had recently chaired a presidential Commission on US Oceans Policy. The next speaker, R. Bruce Josten, Executive Vice President, US Chamber of Commerce, stated that it was "imperative that the US accede to the treaty [UNCLOS] allowing our US economy, resource exploration, and commercial enterprises to sustain our economic position."
