The liberalisation of maritime transport constitutes a substantial and vital progress not only in the
maritime transport market but also in influencing the development of distant island regions. In the
European Union (EU), the establishment of the legal framework and policy regarding the liberalisation is
standing from the year of 1992. In Greece, the first attempt to harmonize the inevitable political and state
framework was in 2001 (2932/2001 Act). Prevailing factors encumbered the liberalisation planning and
implementing, mainly because of the incoherent procedures applied and the partial cover of principal
issues regarding impingement of public interests and goods relative to island development.
In our paper, we provide strongly support to the argument that the major initiative considering the
development of island regions throughout European territory is that European Policy for the liberalisation
of maritime transport should be oriented to the distinctive needs of island regions. Moreover, we provide
a “road map” for completion of the liberalisation procedures. Hence, we address specific proposals and
measures towards the healing of the inadequate regional development.
