Navigating Latin America: P&I focus on ''Hidrovía - Paraná River''
8 April 2021 (9am ET, 2pm GMT)
The webinar features a panel of highly experienced legal, insurance and maritime speakers from the Club and the wider industry. The expert panellists will address a range of issues that international and local shipowners and charterers face in the river, including cargo shortages, new regulations, cargo deterioration due to delays, ship sweat, towage and MARPOL Annex VI – Preventing air pollution from vessels, which has been recently incorporated into Argentina’s legislation.
Leanne O’Loughlin, Regional Director of the UK Club for the Americas, says: “Latin America is a hugely diverse region, presenting numerous opportunities for growth. The UK Club highly values its existing and long-standing relationships in Latin American countries, and we are keen to continue fostering our partnerships with shipowners, operators, charterers and traders.”
This is the second installation of the “Navigating Latin America” series after a successful first webinar focussing on Chile in December 2020. Rafael Diaz, Senior Claims Executive and responsible for the Latin America region, has taken the lead in organising and hosting the webinar series, with contributions from experienced and qualified panellists from the UK P&I Club, local correspondents and representatives from the shipping industry. Topics have been carefully selected based on the Club’s day-to-day handling of claims and inquiries in Latin America and in consultation with local partners in the region.
