This FAL Bulletin is part of the reflections on infrastructure and connectivity that have been frequently addressed in documents of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). It contributes to the reflections under the project “Transport and Trade Connectivity in the Age of Pandemics: Contactless, Seamless and Collaborative UN Solutions”. This edition analyzes the possibility of implementing a ferry network in the Eastern Caribbean region through Public Private Partnerships (PPP’s) to promote better and more fluid connectivity.
This document was prepared by Diogo Aita, Associate Economic Affairs Officer of the Infrastructure Services Unit in the International Trade and Integration Division of ECLAC, based on the Project Document “Evaluación preliminar técnica, económica e institucional para la implementación de un servicio de ferris en el Caribe Oriental”, prepared by Eduardo Lugo, Alberto Undurraga, Ricardo J. Sánchez, and Jorge A. Lupano. This original study was developed within the framework of a technical assistance provided to the Association of Caribbean States (AEC-ACS).
