Abstract: This paper aims to develop and analyse general entrepreneurship strengthening oriented principles in county and local public ports. Complex relations in county and local public ports are elaborated together with basic SBA principles focused on entrepreneurial strengthening. The accent is given to SBA principles serving as an analytical foundation to propose seven main principles focused on entrepreneurship stimulation and strengthening county and local public port systems. They could serve as solid foundation for further growth and development stimulation of county and local public ports focused on efficiency and compatibility with business development policies. This is performed in the light of entrepreneurial orientation of the county and local port systems addressing crucial SME questions which could be beneficial to properly detect possible collision of interests and to confront those as much as possible with the stable institutional framework, standardised principles and strategically targeted development goals. The importance of port authority policies as well as macro port policies to be in line with the policies focused on entrepreneurship strengthening and development is emphasized in order to stimulate port development through realisation of entrepreneurial initiatives in port area and surrounding business environment.
