Woman elected to lead Maritime Chamber of Commerce signifies progressive change


Patricia Velásquez was elected last Friday as president of the Maritime Chamber of Panama for the period 2018-2019 to replace Julio De La Lastra .

It is the first time that a woman has been elected to lead the guild founded in 1979, and in which there are more than 200 affiliated maritime companies.

Velásquez obtained 104 votes or 55% of those who participated in the vote, while Flor Torrijos, the other candidate for the presidency, won 84 votes, which is the same as 45%.

The eight directors who will accompany Velásquez on the board were also chosen: Daniel Isaza Valdés, Verónica Valenzuela, Rodolfo Sabonge, Mary Carmen Barrios, María Lourdes Galán, Francis X. Zeimetz, Nicolás Vukelja and Wendy Sagel.

Voting among members was electronically last Thursday and Friday.
