The competitiveness of global port cities

PortEconomics associate members Michael Dooms, César Ducruet, and Elvira Haezendonck contribute to a working paper offering an evaluation of the performance of the ports of the Seine Axis (Le Havre, Rouen, Caen and Paris), as well as an analysis of the impact of the ports on their territory and an assessment of policies and governance in this field.

This is the first case study of the OECD Port Cities Programme and is published as part of a series of OECD Working Papers on Regional Development published by the OECD Public Governance and Territorial Development Directorate. This paper was also co-authored by Olaf Merk, (CNRS – Université de Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne), Patrick Dubarle, (Vrije Universiteit Brussels) and (Vrije Universiteit Brussels).

The paper is entitled The Competitiveness of Global Port-Cities: The Case of the Seine Axis (Le Havre, Rouen, Paris, Caen) – France and can be downloaded on the OECD website:
