Programs of expansion reported by a number of Spanish ports suggest that despite the depressed state of the country's economy, there is an overall optimism that sufficient cargo can be generated in the future to ensure maximum utilization of any new equipment installed. The reasons for this optimism are diverse, differing from port to port. While a substantial proportion of the increasing international traffic can be attributed to the geographical advantages enjoyed by the Iberian peninsula, the steady trade figures also indicate the strong organization of the port authorities. The article discusses trends currently underway in the ports of Algeciras, Bilbao, Valencia, Cadiz, Tarragona and Vigo.
