Since the very beginning in 1991, the Maritime Authority of Panama and the Panama Canal Authority joined the Maritime Chamber of Panama and the Maritime Law Association as co-organisers of the Conference & Exhibition. They have pledged their full cooperation to ensure the success of this unique gathering in The Americas.

The Canal Administrator will provide an update on how the expanded Canal behaves in terms of revenues and market share - and how the Canal contributes to the consolidation of Panama as a regional logistics centre. The Administrator of the Maritime Authority will give us his vision of the next 100 years of the Registry, as well as the development of port infrastructure, such as the maritime ancillary services wharf and the new cruise terminal.

The Federation of National Associations of Ship Brokers & Agents (FONASBA) provides a united voice for the world’s ship brokers and agents. Founded in 1969, the organisation promotes fair and equitable practices and ensures that the needs of our members are understood at international, regional and individual national level across the maritime industry.
