Inter-American Committee on Ports (CIP)

The Inter-American Committee on Ports (CIP) is the only permanent forum that brings together the national port authorities of the member countries of the Organization of American States (OAS) and leaders of the maritime port industry.

CIP promotes: the development of a competitive, secure, sustainable and inclusive port sector; policy dialogue; strengthening of institutional capacities; technical assistance; and cooperation with the private sector. The CIP Scholarship and Training Program includes certified courses, seminars, workshops and hemispheric conferences. These activities are carried out in collaboration with CIP members, associate members and strategic partners.
