The third day included the presentations on topics such as site investigation, behavior of soils, production, tender and hydraulic fills.

On the last day of the seminar, a presentation on the Panama Canal Expansion Program was given to the participants.

The presenter was Mr. Raúl Figueroa from the Dredging Division of the Autoridad del Canal de Panamá.
