New avenues for collaboration in Latin America

 

by Vladimir Zubkov

Greetings during this Holiday Season to our readers.

 

I would like to share some of the recent highlights.

 

We continue expanding our regional connections and this time the centre of attention was Latin America. Sebastiaan Scholte, Chairman of the TIACA Board, Russi Batliwala, member of the Board and I have discussed the benefits of collaboration with three Latin American entities: ALACAT, AGUNSA and ‘Americas Alliance’. I am offering the description of what they are below, but now would like to explain the objectives of collaboration with them.

In the first place we would like to provide additional opportunities for networking and establishing business contacts to our current and future members in the region which historically is not well covered by TIACA.

 

We are also looking at:

  • Mutual representation and speaking opportunities at regional events.
  • TIACA events (cargo conference, seminars, workshops) in the region.
  • Mutual promotion via social media and newsletters. Distribution of TIACA publications, preferably in the language used in the region.
  • Exchange of information on projected activities and programmes of work in the agreed areas.
  • Capacity building assistance and activities (including training and support activities).
  • And more...

We have signed with each of them a Memorandum of Understanding and we agreed that we will start the new year by discussing practical steps for implementation of these Memoranda.
