"We are proud to announce the appointment of the engineer Jorge L. Quijano as the new administrator of the Canal. The Board, exercising its legal authority and based on its independent function believes that Quijano has the capability and experience necessary to manage the waterway in a critical juncture in its history," said Romulo Roux, Chairman of the Board.
In order to take advantage of the connectivity offered by the Canal and its strategic location, the rules for logistics and port industries must be improved and modernized.
The infrastructure and technology is in place, but a better legal framework is needed in order to take advantage of the connectivity and advantages of the Canal and the location of Panama in the Latin American region.
An engineer with 36 years experience on the waterway, today became the new administrator of the Panama Canal.
