Logistics Strategy for Panama
Our lawyer Akeisha Anderson participated in the executive meeting on the topic "Logistics Strategy for Panama," organized by the Chamber of Commerce, Industries, and Agriculture, held on February 14, 2023, at the JW Marriot Hotel in Panama City.
The purpose of the meeting was to inform attendees about the advances of the logistics strategy that the Panamanian government has adopted for 2023, namely:
- Through Executive Decree No. 268 of April 10, 2018 (which formally adopts the "National Logistics Strategy 2030"), the government intends to create an institutional framework to position Panama's logistics industry and for each incoming government to work based on what this strategy establishes.
- To turn Panama into an internationally recognized logistics hub by integrating the different sectors of the logistics area (air, sea, and land) in order to be able to compete with other countries in the region.
- In cooperation with the National Authority for Government Innovation (AIG), create a technological program called "PORTCEL" that responds to the demands of international trade. In this regard, a single window is created that integrates the various platforms and systems related to logistics and foreign trade activities of the different government authorities, so that the user has access to documentation and procedures in real-time.
