Two key provisions of the mari- time agreement are contained in ex- changes of letters on cargo sharing and port access that are an integral part of the agreement.
The cargo-sharing provisions pledge the intention of each party to provide for parity in bilateral liner cargo carriage and to ensure vessels of each nation at least one-third of such cargoes. Flexible formulas are provided for annual verification.
Bulk cargo is not covered by the cargo-sharing provisions, but the two countries agreed to further con- sultations towards facilitating sub- stantial participation of U.S.-flag bulk vessels in the bilateral bulk trade.
Under the agreement, U.S.-flag vessels may enter 40 listed Chinese ports upon 24 hours advance notice.
Chinese vessels, on the other hand, will be able to enter all U.S. ports, except 12 that have been designated national security risks, upon 24 hours notice.
The agreement also deals with a number of technical matters, in- cluding vessel documentation, crew identity documents, crew shore leave, handling of maritime acci- dents, convertibility of payments, technical exchanges, and most fa- vored nation treatment with respect to the payment of tonnage duties, as well as future consultations.
