“As of 2009[update], the open registries of Panama, Liberia, and Marshall Islands accounted for almost 40% of the entire world fleet, in terms of deadweight tonnage[28] That same year, the top ten flags of convenience registered 55% of the world’s deadweight tonnage, including 61% of bulk carriers and 56% of oil tankers.”
