Title
Concession agreements as port governance tools
Author
Abstract
This chapter discusses the role of concessions as a tool in port governance under the landlord port authority model. The specific design of the concession agreement, its regulatory regime, the tariff regime and the way the concession is awarded reveal the priorities of port authorities and government agencies. Through concession policy, port authorities can retain some control on the organization and structure of the supply side of the port market and can encourage port service providers to optimize the use of scarce resources such as land.
