La prise en considération, par les autorités fédérales belges compétentes, de l’impact que peut avoir une flotte marchande “réellement” nationale a été facilitée par une vaste étude réalisée par le bureau d’études Policy Research Corporation sur l’impact économique d’un pôle maritime belge s’appuyant sur la flotte marchande et les secteurs du remorquage et des travaux hydrauliques.

C’est une combinaison de l’intérêt privé avec l’expertise ferroviaire”.
