The Expansion Program will build a new lane of traffic along the Panama Canal through the construction of a new set of locks, which will double capacity and allow more traffic, longer and wider ships. Currently, the Canal services more than 144 different transportation routes from every corner of the globe as it lies within a critical area where trade routes emerge and connect.
Sponsored by CG/LA Infrastructure, the forum, held from December 12-14, focused on regional, national and global project opportunities and brought together essential participants in modern infrastructure design and financing.
The list of top-level speakers included Dominican Republic Secretary of State Eddy Martinez and Kazakhstan Minister of Industry and Trade Galym Orazbakov.
In addition to the presentations, the forum provided an opportunity for attendees to conduct private meetings with project leaders to foster connections. Event coordinators also organized roundtables and workshops on infrastructure project development.
