Pacific countries rely on ports and shipping for imports, exports, domestic and regional, transport of goods and passengers. There is a growing recognition of the significant impact efficient port operations make on Pacific nation’s economic growth.
International shipping facilitate trade activities between neighbouring Pacific countries as well with major industrial nations of the world. In addition for many Pacific Island communities, domestic shipping is the only means of travel and trade.
