PRIVATISATION OF PORT ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF PORT PUBLIC RESPONSIBILITIES

The privatization of port activities is a topic of considerable interest in market oriented countries. While the mechanics and merits of privatization have been extensively discussed in various articles and conference papers, little attention has been given to putting privatization into proper perspective within the broader context of port authorities' responsibilities. The purpose of this paper is to provide that perspective. The first part is devoted to an assessment of the relevance of the public service concept to the conduct of port affairs. The second part reviews some of the advantages of privatization. It also discusses how privatization can be implemented and some of the problems that are bound to arise if it is introduced.
