The Panama Chamber of Shipping has organized two forums for April 25 and 26 which are of great impact for the future development of the maritime industry.
The first takes place on Wednesday, April 25 at the Hotel Riu Panama City. This is the Logistics Forum “What We Can Do in Panama to Attract Over a Thousand Companies for Cargo Logistics Transshipment Over the Next 10 Years.” This forum is intended as a first initiative to analyze what are the advantages and disadvantages in infrastructure and what areas are available for the development of logistics and how skilled human resources can be made available.
After analyzing these parameters, it aims to promote the actions and suggest adjustments so that Panama becomes one of the major logistics hubs in the world, such as Rotterdam, Hong Kong and Jebel Ali in Dubai, attracting more than 1,000 logistics companies to Panama.
The aim is to consolidate Panama in 10 years as the most important logistics center in the region. The forum begins at 8.00 a.m.
The next day, April 26, at the same location, will be the forum “Bunkering Industry: Present and Future with an Expanded Canal”.
The purpose is to discuss, analyze and review all the current problems and to propose changes so that the Panamanian Bunkering Industry (supplying fuel to ships) becomes one of the main services offered to the thousands of ships passing through the Canal or calling in the ports, matching the great efforts being made in other sectors. Panama wants to further increase its influence as a true world power in the maritime world.
In addition, this forum will analyze the implications of actions with the environment, with national and foreign speakers and guests, who will present the full spectrum of where the industry now stands and also how to protect and preserve the natural environment.
