This conference is a meeting point to understand Mexicans ports current and future opportunities and find solutions to challenges.

A National Program has been launched, devoting nearly £65 billion to help modernize and develop four leading ports, construct ten specialized terminals and grow Mexico’s cargo handling capacity by 60%.

There has been a £2.9 billion investment into expanding the port of Veracruz which will increase the port’s terminals from 18 to 28 and enhance its cargo capacity to 116 million tons.
