AAPA LATINO'S #CHARLASDEPUERTO WEBINARS ARE GIVING A LOT TO TALK ABOUT

August 12th, 2021

As part of the Run-up to the AAPA LATINO, this is an unmissable program of virtual conferences, discussions and exchanges, designed to address the topics of interest to the port & maritime sector, analyze trends and share experiences from renowned industry leaders in Latin America.
As we prepare to meet again in Cartagena from November 29 to December 1, 2021, the webinars that are part of the run-up to the AAPA LATINO gave us an exclusive insight on how the most renowned ports in Europe and Latin America have dealt with the challenges imposed by the past year and what they have been up to, in order to maintain their operations and sustained growth.
The first edition of #CharlasdePuerto, convened with the Fundación ValenciaPort and produced by PR PORTS, took place on May 12, 2021 and was streamed from the AAPA LATINO’s YouTube channel and other social networks. In this opportunity, Francesc Sánchez -General Director of the Port Authority of Valencia-, engaged in a discussion with 8 specialized journalists about current topics of great interest in the sector, such as: digitalization, innovation and automation, sustainability and environment, port-city relationship and infrastructure.

Emiliano Galli, Editor of Trade News (Argentina), Andrés Orrego, Director of PortalPortuario (Chile), Darío Kogan, Editor of Megatrade Magazine (Argentina), Carlos Caicedo, Commercial Director of Inbound Logistics LATAM (Mexico), Carlos Vicedo, Editor of Veintepies (Spain), Luciana Zonta, Journalist of Informativo dos Portos (Brasil), Alberto Zanela, Deputy Editorial Director of Grupo T21 (Mexico) and Fernando Vitoria Briz, General Director of Grupo Diario (Spain), were the journalists who interviewed the General Director of one of the main ports in Europe, ranked fourth in cargo movement in the continent, considered the best connected port in Spain and that has been awarded for its initiatives in environmental, technological and digitalization issues.

More than 1,000 registrants through the different AAPA LATINO’s digital platforms attended the live streaming of the second webinar, on June 10, 2021.
On this occasion, four executives from renowned Latin American port companies reviewed the challenges and difficulties they had to overcome during 2020, highlighted the role of ports as an essential industry, mentioned that digitization is here to stay and agreed that the key is to learn from the experiences, in order to understand Latin America as a whole and not as isolated parts, and that the problems facing the region can also be considered opportunities.

Carlos Urriola, President of Manzanillo International Terminal (MIT) - Panama, Leoncio Pérez López, CEO of Grupo CICE - Mexico, Guillermo Misiano, President of PTP Group - Argentina and Andrés Osorio, President of Compañía de Puertos Asociados (COMPAS) - Colombia, accompanied by Mario Goicoechea -member of AAPA's Latin American Leadership- moderating the session, shared their experiences and perspectives on the sector.
The activity also included a time for Q&A from the webinar audience, composed of industry representatives and specialized journalists from 26 countries. During this discussion, some interesting topics were addressed: the central role of governments in regional integration, the changes that need to be implemented in the legislation of each country to attract investment and the importance of investing in the infrastructure near the ports, in order to make them more competitive.

The third #CharlasdePuerto webinar was convened in partnership with AIVP (Association Internationale Villes et Ports), one of the leading European associations promoting city & port cooperation. It was held on August 11th, 2021 and was streamed on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, with 500 people joining the live streaming adding up all AAPA Latino's social networks.

On this occasion, Carlos Mondaca -Public Affairs Manager of Empresa Portuaria San Antonio-, Carla Monrabal -President of the Board of Directors of Consorcio de Gestión del Puerto de Dock Sud-, Pablo Rizzo -President of the Board of Directors of Autoridad Portuaria de Guayaquil- and Jean Paulo Castro e Silva -Business and Sustainability Director of Companhia Docas do Rio de Janeiro-, moderated by José Pagés Sánchez -International Project Manager of AIVP-, addressed the challenges faced by their ports in establishing sustainable and mutually beneficial relations with the cities and their environment.

Undoubtedly, many other issues of interest and concern to the sector are still to be discussed. The next editions of #CharlasdePuerto will aim to continue addressing all these matters deeply, so we invite you to join the next virtual conferences, while we prepare to gather again at the XXIX Latin American Congress of Ports in Cartagena
