Price: 50 руб.
 The article explores the early stage (1856–1864) of business activities of the Russian Steam Navigation and Trading Company (ROPiT), the largest steamship company in the Imperial Russia by the turn of the 20th century. The joint-stock company
exemplifies the specifics, which are typical of the establishing of the historically
first Russian public-private partnership aimed at developing the infrastructural
environment of the Black Sea region in Russia. The subject of this study includes
the directions of freight and passenger traffic across the ports on the Black Sea and
the Sea of Azov, investment in onshore construction, ways of organizing transport
connection with the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus. The article demonstrates that
the Company’s activities contributed to the effort to reinforce the military, social
and economic capacity of eastern Black Sea coast. The author’s conclusion is that
the outcome of the Company’s operation validated the importance of innovative use
of economic and organizational mechanisms in development of a major transport
company, in the quest of an optimum balance between the public and private interest, while simultaneously ensuring profitability and competitiveness in a difficult
internal and international political situation for the country.

Keywords: Russian Steam Navigation and Trading Company, Black Sea region, Caucasus, joint-stock company, transport communication, infrastructure, public-private
partnership.
