June 06-10, 2022

Panama was present at Posidonia, the largest maritime industry fair, where experts from the international maritime industry meet.

With the purpose of securing new investments for the country in the logistics, maritime and tourism sectors, the National Authority for Investment Attraction and Export Promotion of Panama, PROPANAMA, participated in this international maritime fair held biannually in Athens, Greece, from 6 to 10 June 2022.

Posidonia contributes to create spaces for the main representatives of the global maritime sector to discuss and agree on a consensus to meet the commitment of the International Maritime Organization, with the aim of achieving, by 2030, a reduction of at least 40% of the average carbon intensity of maritime transport (CO2 per tonne-mile), compared to 2008.

According to the organisers' estimates, it is expected to match the record number of exhibitors compared to the last Posidonia exhibition in 2018, which brought together around two thousand nine exhibitors and had a total attendance of 39 thousand and 485 people, the event's website specifies.

PROPANAMA worked together with the Panama Maritime Authority (AMP), the Panama Canal Authority and the Panama Tourism Authority (ATP), in an effort, as a country accompanied by more than 18 companies from the national maritime and logistics sector, to publicise the advantages of the maritime business in Panama and promote opportunities for nearshoring, maritime and shipping services, for the Latin American and Caribbean market. 

PROPANAMA signs a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the official agency of the Greek state, Enterprise Greece, to strengthen trade relations between Panama and Greece. 

Official meeting held with the CEO of Golden Union Shipping Co. S.A., Theodore Venicimuis.
