The S/CIP centers its activities around four main pillars: 1) Promoting the Inter-American political dialogue; 2) Capacity Building and training; 3) Project implementation; and, 4) Collaboration with the Private Sector. In this context, the S/CIP, in collaboration with National Port Authorities of OAS Member Countries or with Associate Members, organizes several hemispheric conferences every year. These may be of a political and/or technical nature and may include workshops. S/CIP also offers scholarships for professional training programs with our strategic partners. These programs range from operations and logistics, to sustainable port management, port security and even gender issues. Please click on the banner to access the 2018 CIP Calendar of Activities.
