Output per worker surges to $20,000 a year in Panama

Thursday, May 12, 2011


The productivity of workers in Panama has risen sharply in recent years.

In 2004, the value of the average worker’s output was measured at $12,496. Last year it rose to $19,608, according to official statistics.

The question now is whether wages have risen in proportion to the increase in productivity.
