U.S. Action on the Global Stage


Our world is increasingly connected - global communications, a global economy, a global ocean. International shipping transports goods halfway around the world through our ports, up to the minute wave heights are available on your mobile phone, projections and observations show diminishing sea ice in the Arctic, and fisheries fleets span the high seas and beyond.

The connections among the ocean, people, and nations are constantly evolving. Understanding how the U.S. is affected by different global drivers, how it is navigating changing international relationships, and how it is harnessing the power of these connections can better position the U.S. for success and prosperity.
