Abstract

Measures needed to be implemented by the Port Authority at the maritime domain of the Port of Split in order to strengthen maritime traffic and stimulate economic development of the city were examined by conducting the structured questionnaire among concessionaires in the port area. The collected data were processed using the Friedman test and Sign test. Among six options, the concessionaires mostly indicated variable of building an infrastructure that will promote and attract the presence of different forms of maritime traffic in the port as the best choice for the initial purpose. Different forms of maritime traffic enable more business opportunities to  compensate for the potential operating loss in case of declining maritime traffic. The Port Authority should consider the concessionaires' attitude, despite the possibility to express their own business interests within, as their business results are closely related to the size of maritime traffic in the port.
