Abstract

As an important fulcrum for building the economic belt of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, clarifying the influence paths among the influencing factors of the construction of port infrastructure connectivity is crucial for promoting the smooth flow of maritime transportation channels. By combing the existing research results, it is found that the political environment, trade facilitation level, and port hinterland economy have influence on port infrastructure connectivity potential and sort out the relationship between the influencing factors, put forward six reasonable hypotheses, and validate the hypothesized relationship based on the structural equation modeling and the actual data of 69 countries along the route, and get the conclusion, which is found that the trade facilitation level and port hinterland economy have a strong influence on the port infrastructure connectivity potential. It is found that trade facilitation level and port hinterland economy have a strong positive influence on port infrastructure connectivity potential, and the influence of political environment on port infrastructure connectivity potential is not significant.
