Blockades by indigenous groups pose severe headache to trade for Panama

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Blockades of major highways and clashes between indigenous groups and the authorities in Panama are posing concern to business leaders and producers.

Analysts say that Panama's good name in international markets is being threatened.

Severo Sousa, president of the free-zone association, said that trade has been stalled with the rest of Central America because the majority of it comes through the roads that are being blockaded.
