International consultants invited by the Ministry of Infrastructure are proposing that Ukraine consider the possibility of the cluster system for development of ports. Today, one can speak not only about the fact that many ports in Europe and the world have chosen this route, but also about the fact that clustering, along with inter-modality and containerization, has become the irrevocable global trend in maritime trade. Maria Mikhailenko, a principal with Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, talks about whether such a scenario is possible in Ukraine and its possible benefits.
