The Port authority of San Pedro found financial balance with convincing indicators of financial management.

It is the first time since the startup of the port of San Pedro, which a level of total traffic of goods of a million eight hundred and thousand (1 800 000) tons is reached.

For the year 2012, the objective is clear. The PASP must arrive mainly at the realization of the following results:
- a total traffic of goods of five (05) million tons;
- a Turnover of almost six (06) billion FCFA;
- a profit bottom line of 10% of the turnover;

- strategy and management;
- the commercial action and financial management;
