He was speaking on the sidelines of the Sea Asia conference during Singapore Maritime Week.
LPG and LNG are providing additional revenue for the Panama Canal, in addition to the container trades, which represent 50%-51% of its overall revenues.
“LNG will continue to grow. I think that we will probably be doing one vessel per day by 2020-2021,” Mr Quijano said.
According to Quijano, the Panama Canal’s expansion has also brought a shift in trade patterns in the liquid bulk segment.
