About the product

A six-part analysis of the major issues which arise from private participation in public-sector port services and port facilities in Latin America and the Caribbean. It suggests economic, legal and social measures governments might adopt to deal with these issues. An overview of the market forces that have caused the need to restructure and redefine the roles of government and private institutions is also included as well as operational and institutional factors which mandate a competitive restructuring. To provide guidelines for private investors mixed public-private options have been evaluated.
