Representatives from more than 70 countries have gathered in Panama this week for the 15th annual Marine Accident Investigators' International Forum (MAIIF) meeting. Organized by the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) together with the Panama Maritime Authority (AMP), the conference enables participants to share best practices related to the investigation of maritime accidents and promote increased communication among accident investigators worldwide. During the conference, MAIIF acknowledged the Panama Canal's commitment to reducing maritime accidents. ACP Captain Miguel Rodríguez, who helped to organize the meeting, said, "This conference is an excellent venue to discuss and analyze maritime accident investigation best practices. Thanks to some dynamic and innovative work done by ACP employees, the ACP has reduced accidents at the Canal."

The meeting was inaugurated by Second Vice President of the Republic of Panama and concurrent AMP Administrator Ruben Arosemena; ACP Administrator and CEO Alberto Alemán Zubieta; and President of the MAIIF Doug Rabe.
