Costa Rica and Panama first to take advantage of new accord with Europe
A joint project between Panama and Costa Rica marks the first product of the European Union-Central America association agreement, an aid and trade accord between the regions signed in May.
Announced at a meeting of the Central American Integration System in Guatemala last week, the project aims to strengthen border security, promote greater connectivity and facilitate integrated management and information sharing in border areas.
The $7 million initiative will be funded primarily by the European Union.
