ABSTRACT

This paper explores and summarizes the experience of financing water transport infrastructure of a number of countries with developed network of inland waterways, namely the USA, Russia and Germany. The purpose of the work is to generalize current situation and find ways of optimization of inland waterway transport infrastructure financing. The first part of the paper analyses the state of inland waterways infrastructure. The next part describes the existing financing systems. The last part examines the main problems that hamper the development of the industry and looks for possible ways to solve them.
