Loans for Panama's Colón free trade zone slow down
Loans for Panama's Colón free trade zone reached $2.7 billion in the first half of the year, according to the country's banking authority.
But the figure shows a slowdown in the amount of credit due to ongoing issues with Colombia and Venezuela.
According to the banking authority, over the last eight years, the amount of credit has grown by some $1.8 billion on top of the $966 million in 2005.
