Latin American Crossroads: Panama & Global Atlanta Open House
- This event has passed.
Panama has the “Path Between the Seas,” as one historian called it, the canal that changed the way global commerce works.
Now, those logistical connections are reverberating throughout Georgia, forcing the deepening of the Savannah port and forging new aviation and educational connections.
Join Global Atlanta and our sponsor, Emory Executive Education, for the “Linked by Logistics: Panama and Georgia,” the third event in the Latin American Crossroads series celebrating Atlanta’s role as a connecting point for the hemisphere.
