Panamas President Torrijos To Accept AAPAs Port Person of Year Award
The conference will run from September 30 through October 4.
Hosted by the Virginia Port Authority, the five-day maritime industry gathering will feature an agenda of issue-defining presentations, panel discussions, interactive sessions, networking events and a robust exhibition of service and product providers to the port industry. After accepting his "Port Person" award at the Oct. 2 luncheon, Pres. Torrijos will give the convention's keynote address, focusing on the $5.25 billion Panama Canal expansion project that began this month, which will more than double ship capacity through the 93-year-old canal.
