Port Performance Research Network

Department of Maritime Administration is organizing the 2015 Port Performance Research Network (PPRN) meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Dr. Grace Wang, Texas A&M University Galveston, and Dr. Athanasios Pallis, the University of the Aegean, serve as the chair of the planning committee.
The PPRN is an informal network of maritime economists interested in issues of port policy. Founded and chaired by Dr. Mary R. Brooks, it was established at the International Association of Maritime Economists 2001 meeting in Hong Kong to undertake empirical testing of antecedents for port performance and governance and to identify key successes and failures in port reform.
