Dr. Juan Curbelo del Bosco

Chair of the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) on Tourism, Inland Ports and Waterways, Ship Services and Navigation Safety 

President, National Port Administration (ANP), Uruguay

Uruguay is a member of the Executive Committee of the Inter-American Committee on Ports (CECIP) and chairs the Technical Advisory Group on Tourism, Inland Ports and Waterways, Services to Ships and Control of Navigation.

Our country fulfilled the commitments assumed in accordance with the Work Plan presented at the 2018 meeting, in addition to participating in training plans, scholarships, seminars, etc.

Chairing the TAG, on Tourism, Inland Ports and Waterways, Services to Ships and Navigation Control has been a very important challenge for the region and therefore for all the countries that make up the Waterway as well as Tourism, having been reflected by Uruguay with the holding of the TAG Hemispheric Conference, from October 8 to 10, 2019 in Montevideo - Uruguay, in which the challenges that should be borne in mind in a medium-term scenario were expressed.

We remain attentive to the incorporation of the topics primarily that the countries that make up the Committee want to propose which the CIP Secretariat proposes.

Due to the global situation in light of COVID-19, many activities have been postponed and canceled, but this does not mean that we do not continue working on projects that promote and strengthen our inter-institutional ties in conjunction with the Secretariat of the Inter-American Committee on Ports.

I extend my warmest regards to all member countries, associate members, members of the CECIP, of the TAGs and a special recognition to the Secretariat of the Inter-American Committee on Ports who has taken this special moment that we are all living with much responsibility and work.
