There was a close relationship between port logistics development and economic growth. This paper using the harbor cargo volume of goods handled data and the GDP data of Dalian from 1992 to 2010, researched dynamic relativity and causality between port logistics development and economy growth from positive view, by co - integration analysis and Granger causality test. Positive analysis result indicated there was stable equilibri- um relationship between port logistics development and economic growth in long- term, but not in short - term. The error correction model could con- nect the long- term co - integration and short term variation,the adjusting coefficient of error correction term was 1.7832 which meant that the veloc- ity of short term variation approaching the long - term equilibrium was 1. 7832. The long - term co - integration equation revealed that the economy growth elasticity of port logistics development was 0. 3122, while the short- term error correction equation revealing the economy growth elasticity of port logistics development was 0. 054. The Granger test result revealed that port logistics development could cause economy growth, but economy growth was not the causation of port logistics development.
