The recent dynamics that are currently shaping the logistics maritime
economy, from reshoring/nearshoring to the
growing role of technologies partly owing to the pandemic,
are increasing the development of ports in the Mediterranean
area and the role of Suez as a strategic hub for the transit of
goods and energy flow. These aspects improve the maritime
attractiveness of container ports in the Med. Maritime
competitiveness is a result of considerable investment due
to shipping being a capital-intensive sector, and foreign
investment gauges the importance of these interventions
alongside the attractiveness of the Mediterranean. In
particular, Chinese investment (especially through the Belt
and Road Initiative) is very relevant in the Euro-Mediterranean
area. Finally, free zones, linked to top Mediterranean ports,
are experiencing significant growth while encouraging
investment, including in the green sector.
