STATE'S ROLE IN WATERBORNE TRANSPORTATION

The paper reports on a study of upstate New York public ports that demonstrated the great value of these ports for New York State's economy. It showed that the trend towards increasing public port deficits can be reversed. Investments in facilities needed for each port to develop its special potential will yield high benefits to the state, as well as to individual ports. On the basis of this study and relatively brief experience in port planning, some general conclusions as to an appropriate state role in this area are drawn.
