Panama Sponsors Maritime Symposium Sept. 20-22
A maritime symposium sponsored by the Republic of Panama will be held at the new Atlapa Conference Centre in Panama City from September 20-22.
The symposium has attracted an eminent group of speakers including Sir Y.K. Pao, C.P. Srivastava, Phillip Loree, Charles Kiskadon, Shigeo Nagano, Paul Slater, Fernando Manfredo, Luis H. Moreno, and Dr. H.J. Stocker.
The president of the organizing committee is the director general of Panama's National Port Authority, Major Jose Santos Motta, who noted that the country "has a total commitment to building up new and improved commercial relationships worldwide." He cited the granting of two important concessions to private companies for the operation of major facilities in the port and canal areas in 1981 as an example of Panama's commitment.
The symposium will be hosted by Dr. Aristides Royo, president of the republic. Many other key Panamanian figures in international trade and foreign investments also will participate.
Major issues to be covered include: the future of the Panama Canal; the revision of international maritime laws; an analysis of the future development of the world fleet; and the problems, alternatives, and importance of open registry.
Also, the future importance and participation of international commercial cargo in marine transportation ; labor codes for seamen ; new safety regulations; and cargo sharing.
The symposium is being sponsored by the Panamanian Institute of Law, the Maritime Chamber of Panama, and the Panamanian Maritime Foundation, with the full backing of the government.
A full program of cultural and recreational activities are being arranged for the 400 delegates who are expected to attend.
Also available will be opportunities for liaison with Panamanian ministers from the economic and commercial sectors involved in international trade and foreign investment.
