Quays and docks are elements of city-port heritage which, like a living port, are in constant evolution. For Léonce Naud, a geographer well known to AIVP members, one must be cautious about declaring a quay obsolete too quickly, and fixing its use through developments for housing or private marinas.

The Jamaican Government has an ambition: to turn the country into a logistic hub for the Caribbean and the Americas. The programme includes the development of ports, particularly that of Kingston, a new airport for freight and special economic zones. The Plan has received the support of the World Bank and the government seeks to increase the number of foreign investors.
