Abstract

This study presents the calculations needed to obtain the overall economic impact of the Port of Santander in 2005. Clearly, to obtain this impact we must calculate the direct, indirect en induced impact, both of the Port Community and the Community of Port Users. This study will show the analyses carried out to obtain the economic impact of the Port of Santander on the economy of the city of Santander, Cantabria and its hinterland in 2005. Significantly, it is the first time that the impact on the city and its hinterland has been calculated, given that previous studies calculated only the impact on the region. This contribution supplements the previous studies carried out in that it quantifies the significance of ports and the companies in their influence area that use their facilities in terms of the creation of value and employment.
