Case study : Port Louis player in the Indian Ocean
Port Louis, player in the Indian Ocean
In the context of the case studies which we carry out on the port cities of the AIVP network, we propose to you today to discover our latest number dedicated to Port Louis (Mauritius).
The port of Port Louis, which handles 99% of the foreign trade of the country, obviously plays a major role. In fact Mauritius Ports Authority are displaying optimism and the port found an upwards trend in 2010. The investments and projects undertaken over the last decade are thus bearing fruit. If the port wish to comfort their asserted ambition to become a transhipment hub, it will be necessary to develop additional capacities. The Port have thus ordered a masterplan in order to study the various options possible, and notably the compatibility between port functions and urban utilisations which could also be installed with the so-called Neotown project in a bordering zone.
