We want Arkansas companies and educators to join the World Trade Center Arkansas & the Walton College of Business delegation for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with the leaders of Panama’s most important agencies, including the Panama Canal Authority.
Panama serves as the crossroads of trade for the Americas. Its strategic location as a bridge between two oceans and has made Panama not only a maritime and air transport hub, but also an international trading, banking and services center. The Canal transits nearly 12,000 ships and 250 Million tons of cargo every year.
The U.S. is Panama’s most important trading partner, with about 30% of the import market, U.S. products enjoy a high degree of acceptance in Panama. In 2014, U.S. exports to Panama reached $10.4 billion.
The U.S. transportation industry holds some of the best prospects for exporting to Panama and market opportunities abound.
With the Panama Canal Expansion and a vibrant logistics and supply chain sector, many opportunities are expected for business that are looking to grow or expand in the region.
