Despite the globalisation of maritime traffic, overseas ports must continue to play a role in the well-being of local populations, with the ability to schedule the convergence of vessels and goods or passengers passing through their docks and create added value. With this in mind, it is important that they demonstrate their ability to invigorate remotely, to intensify the activity they generate and to extend the scope of the latter. They must also, by means of efficient governance, enhance their appeal in order to better reflect the changes in global maritime traffic and become valuable avenues of growth not just for France but for the European Union (EU) as a whole.
