Tuesday, March 20, 2018

Construction firms from Spain, Italy and China are interested in public works in Panama, Vice President Isabel Saint Malo said, filling a gap left by Brazil’s Odebrecht, which is banned from tendering in the wake of a graft scandal.

“Latin America and Panama needs companies to understand that my country will no longer permit corruption in public works. There will be consequences,” Saint Malo said.
