A study commissioned by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
From the text:
With the expansion of the Panama Canal in 2016, global maritime transport is about to undertake a quantum leap into a new era characterised by substantially larger ships. We are all asking: what does this mean for the Caribbean? What are the opportunities that this new development will offer? How does the Region unlock such opportunities in an environment, which, by all indications, is becoming increasingly competitive?
Regional maritime transport already faces a number of serious challenges, among which are the growing unmet demand for port infrastructure investment; inadequate port infrastructure; poor maintenance of port infrastructure, and under-capitalisation.
