Houston delegation to Panama urges approval of two nations’ free trade pact
Last year, Panama and Houston traded $1.7 billion in goods and services, up from $897.3 million in 2009.
Hoping to boost that commerce, a delegation from Houston joined Panamanian officials in urging the United States and Panama to complete a stalled free trade agreement.
"We know with the free trade agreement, those numbers will grow even more dramatically," said Jeff Moseley, president and CEO of the Greater Houston Partnership, which led a trade mission to Panama this week.
