The conference included a business program that focused on top issues currently being faced within the maritime industry, including energy resiliency, cybersecurity and port cooperation, along with advocacy sessions by key policymakers from Capitol Hill. On Tuesday, AAPA President and CEO Kurt Nagle and John Martin of Martin Associates unveiled the 2015 The State of Freight - Port Surface Transportation Infrastructure Survey on the economic impact of seaports and the critical need for infrastructure funding. Also during the conference, AAPA jointly honored Mexico's General Coordinator of Ports and Merchant Marine Guillermo Ruiz de Teresa and U.S. Sen.
