Summary
The business of seaport and economic growth is a closely intertwined relationship due to the port's seaward and landward natures, with the former affecting the performance of the domestic economy's international trade and the latter affecting the real estate sector and virtually all other economic sectors. This crucial synergy is in turn dependent on the strategic quality of public policy in renewing and strengthening infrastructural and related activities affecting the seaport, evident in Singapore's experience, analysed in this book. The result is dynamic growth propagating from a knock-on effect spreading outwards from the port and tertiary industries. The book looks in detail at the various relationships concerned and should be useful to policy makers and planners in the communications, transportation, commerce, banking and real estate industries in seaport economies
