Abstract

The design of what is outlined in this paper is not confined to study the port of Sines in a logic of pure port management, not even only as the decomposed observation of flows originated by the so-called industrial complex, since until now, the economic history was charged of such anatomical structural analysis. What is called for is beyond the mere circumstances prevailing or the sum of the parts and aims to look Sines in a multidimensional way as an open system, characterized by how parts are organized and how together they can contribute to economic revitalization, sustainable development and social cohesion of a considerable portion of the national territory. In other words, we assume the possibility of the occurrence of a regional cluster supported on the global networks of the maritime chain.
