The OAS’s CIP the only permanent Inter-American government forum that brings together the National Port Authorities of all OAS Member States for the promotion of the development of competitive, safe, sustainable, and inclusive ports in the Americas with the active participation of the private sector

Previous Seminars and Classes we hosted as part of our partnership with OAS in the Dominican Republic and Peru have been positive experiences, and we are excited to spend a full week in Panama offering educational services, and exchanging experiences and information. Panama undoubtedly has a long history of delivering complex dredging projects successfully, and we look forward to a what we anticipate being an eminently interactive course,” said Dr. Luis Prieto-Portar, PCG’s Lead Instructor.

PCG plans to educate approximately 35 Port AMP officials in attendance on the different dynamics surrounding dredging projects.

The Seminar addressed topics such as: Dredge Project Design, Contract Administration, Risk Management, Site Investigations, Environmental Compliance, and Performance-Based Contracting among others.
