Regarding the content of the seminar on port environmental management and sustainability offered by APEC, I consider that the topics that were addressed were adequate to carry out the exchange of knowledge and presentation of the good practices that the companies of the port of Antwerp have implemented.

The knowledge provided helped to put in context the activities and controls that are currently being carried out in the port of Veracruz, this information will serve to review what activities can be adjusted, with the aim of improving them. Additionally, the presentation of the sustainability objectives agenda provided an overview of where to establish the objectives and efforts.

The most interesting topics in my opinion were those in which the implementation of technologies for renewable energy generation was discussed, raising questions about the applicability in the different ports that we were participating in; response to the emergency, among others.

I believe that the program was structured properly, with an easy-to-follow schedule and with adequate time to carry out the live sessions. As well as, the orientation of the person who coordinated the seminar, the information provided to guide us and the sending of the appointments in advance, gave an excellent sense of organization and commitment.

On the other hand, the experience of the speakers is a highlight, as well as the appropriate preparation of the materials that are the object of the exhibitions, including the use of the different platforms that facilitated interaction with the participants.

I was very pleased to have been part of this call and to have participated in this seminar in which experiences and knowledge in environmental matters of the Port of Antwerp were provided, for which I feel very grateful and satisfied.
