Trade mission to U.S. promotes Panama Pacifico area
The late-August trip was organized by the American Chamber of Commerce Panama.
The mission provided an opportunity for the delegation to ensure that international company leaders and global investors in the Atlanta market are aware of what the Panama Pacifico Special Economic Area near Panama City has to offer.
In addition to conducting one-on-one meetings with corporate executives representing diverse industry sectors, the Panama Pacifico team participated in a business roundtable and special networking events. The team utilized the meetings to establish and maintain relationships with key company leaders located in the Atlanta area.
Some of the key information shared during the business meetings included the special economic area’s favorable regulations such as special tax, labor and legal incentives to companies that open a facility on the site, as well as the onsite one-stop-shop, which reduces red-tape with 17 government agencies available and onsite customs operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
While in Atlanta, the Panama Pacifico delegates also met with international and trade media
