The PortEconomics team had the privilege to provide a customised edition of its flagship PortExecutive Seminar, this time in Panama, with the program attended by the personnel of the Panama Canal Authority
The 6th edition of the PortExecutive Seminar focused on business development for ports, and related industrial and logistics complexes. Specific attention was given on issues as drivers of change, the use of concessions, stakeholder management and business development capabilities.
The program included various interactive workshops, with the active participation of the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) employees involved in business development.
The Panama Canal Authority is in charge of developing the whole canal zone and therefore has ample opportunities to develop new business.
The course was delivered by four members of the PortEconomics – Peter de Langen, Michael Dooms, Theo Notteboom and Jean Paul Rodrigue – who travelled to Panama and provide this interactive one-week-training-program. PortEconomics experts also had an interesting informal exchange of ideas with the Management team of ACP.
Port professionals expressed their satisfaction with the program – with PES evaluated by the participants, with an average score of over 9.5 out of 10.
