In 27 years of institutional life of the Latin American Guild of Maritime Law, it is the first time that the presidency is in charge of an Ecuadorian. The privileged one is Jose Modesto Apolo, who told Daily Expreso that a sea of opportunities for the country is opened now to catch up in the maritime legal field. “We are in diapers,” he said.
He added there are many agreements to ratify and laws to be amended.
The event, in which Ecuador took over the presidency of the International Institute, was attended by businessmen such as Henry Kronfle, former president of the Chamber of Industries of Guayaquil, and Bruno Leone, president of the National Chamber of Fisheries.
Leone stated that fishing in the country is of high level, ie oceanic. We must deal with international conventions and is a very good thing that we can count on an renowned international institute.
