By Finance

US Navy has developed a 30-year plan for shipbuilding.
A statement by Rear Admiral John Kirby:
"Today we provided Congress information tables from our draft 30-year shipbuilding plan. We believe the information found in these tables clearly articulates our intention to modernize and grow the fleet to our required minimum of 306 ships."
It was announced also that older ships have to be decommissioned. There is a need more new ships to be introduced.
Both Secretary Mabus and Admiral Greenert have talked about shipbuilding. Under Secretary Mabus' leadership the Navy has put 43 new ships under contract.
