Said the AAPA: "Since its opening 94 years ago, the Panama Canal has contributed significantly to increasing world trade. In preparation for a third set of locks that will double the capacity of the canal by 2014, the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) will host its biennial Harbors, Navigation and Environment (HN&E) seminar in Panama City, May 20-22nd."
Panama City will host the 12th Congress of Latin American and Caribbean ports between July 17 and 21.
The audit carried out by the International Maritime Organization evaluates the procedures and steps carried out for the registration and inspection of ships as well as regulations that are applied to the various ports in the country.
A total of 3,821 boats travelled through the Panama Canal in the April-to-June period this year, 95 more than did so last year. It's a 2.5 percent increase, according to the state agency that administers inter-ocean navigation.
With an investment of $3.2 million, a new access channel to the Almirante terminal in Bocas del Toro was inaugurated.
