According to ECA figures, of a
total of 765 ships, only 317 are
sailing under Greek registry, as
compared with 338 Greek-regis
tered ships out of 427 in 1939. At j
the same time, present tonnage
has more than doubled over the
prewar total of 1,965,146 tons.
Deep-sea shipping today stands
at 3,878,787 tons.
An agreement with the Unit
ed States, prior to Marshall Plan
aid, provided 100 wartime Lib

private interests for $560,000 each.
Most of the ships were registered
in Central American countries.
