The aim of the article is to suggest a monitoring tool for a business model to assess performance and meet sustainable development goals and indicators for the sea commercial ports. According to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, building resilient infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization and fostering innovation is one of the seventeen goals set forward. We assume that added value is the key aim of any business model creation, while business model itself is recommended to be based on multidimensional innovation and complementary assets of business.The multidimensional innovations include: market innovation, product innovation and process innovation. The introduction part here presents the description of the business model development roadmap. For the specific case of a trade port case the business model rests on four blocks: the system for added value generation, value suggestion, clients and financial model. The complementary assets’ list is presented for such a sea commercial port. Qualitative and quantitative indicators of the sea trade port business model performance are tracked down. Business model sustainable development for a sea commercial port is described. Value added is considered as the indicator of sustainable development on both micro- and macrolevels.
The aim of this article is to formulate hypotheses about the impact of the foreign direct investment (FDI) on sustainable development indicators of differently developed countries with reference to the relevant scientific literature. The impact of foreign direct investment on development and facets of sustainable development has been discussed in this article. After the review of the relevant scientific literature some consistent patterns have been identified, what, finally, led to the formulation of initial hypotheses. The countries were grouped according to the level of their development. A set of sustainable development indicators reflecting different facets of sustainability and sensitive to countries’ development level has been distinguished. The following indicators have been considered as relevant for inclusion into the set, which would be used for estimation of FDI impact on enhancing well-being in the unevenly developed countries: GDP, exports, inflation, population, life expectancy at birth, primary school pupils, infant mortality, total health expenditure per capita, total tax rate, internet users, and residential consumption of electricity). As this article is focused for the long-term perspective of FDI impact on sustainable development, it was based on three aspects of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. Series of hypothesis have been formulated in this paper.
