Articles, 2011, vol. 38, issue 3

Abstract: The Port of Tarifa is located in the Strait of Gibraltar and is the Iberian Peninsula’s southernmost town. The port is operated by the Algeciras Bay Port Authority and currently handles more than a million passengers annually with fast ferries to the Moroccan Port of Tangier. The port authority has planned an expansion of the port in 2015 aimed at tripling the current number of passengers and capturing a larger volume of the roll-on roll-off (ro-ro) traffic. The purpose of this paper is to estimate both current economic impact of the Port of Tarifa in 2007 and forecast its future economic impact following the planned expansion in 2015.
