                          1. Without the port, Melbourne would not have as easy access to all of the imported products
                            1. Gives the ability for Melbourne to import things we don't/ can't manufacture here, such as cars and electronics
                              1. We are able to export our own products such as agricultural products, which boosts our economy

                                  1. Projects such as the channel deepening project ensure that the Port of Melbourne will be able to keep up with the constant increase in size of ships meaning that the port of Melbourne will continue to be able to handle the amount of ships coming in and out of the port.
