Mexico and Panama Green Port Technologies Reverse Trade Mission

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) sponsored a Reverse Trade Mission (RTM) for a delegation of officials from Mexico and Panama focused on green ports.

The goal of this RTM, which Meridian organized on behalf of USTDA, was to familiarize these officials with U.S. technology and service capabilities for environmentally friendly port operations, along with regulatory and related environmental best practices for the ports sector. Delegates met with federal and state regulators, environmental engineering and consulting providers, service and maintenance providers, financiers, and U.S. operators/suppliers of related U.S. equipment and services.

Delegates from Mexico included representatives from the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) and the Ports of Altamira, Ensenada, Guaymas, and Veracruz. Delegates from Panama included representatives from the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) and Panama Maritime Authority (AMP).
