From The Los Angelas Times:

Shipyard plan doesn't jibe with Port of Los Angeles' vision
quote:

Deep inside the nation's busiest seaport lurks the old Southwest Marine shipyard, a collection of rusting corrugated-metal buildings, broken windows and dark interiors that has appeared in more than a dozen films and television shows, including "Die Hard," "24" and "CSI: Miami."

But these days, the 38-acre site at the Port of Los Angeles is the setting for another kind of high-stakes drama, this time involving competing visions of the port's future.

Philippine shipbuilding alive and well
quote:

In Subic Bay Freeport, just a few kilometers northwest of the Philippine capital Manila, business is booming.You could be excused for thinking the Philippines' greatest contribution to shipping was in supplying seafarers to man the world's merchant navy. However, a huge chunk of maritime business in the country last year came from an area you wouldn’t expect — shipbuilding. Yes, there is a Philippine shipbuilding industry.

Comment: Okay, so it's not a very new shipyard now but don't forget that it started out from practically nothing only a few years ago.
