Panama and Colombia resume suspended talks on a free trade agreement

Friday, March 9, 2012

The governments of Panama and Colombia will resume talks to establish a free trade agreement, said Panama's trade and industry minister, Ricardo Quijano.

The talks had been suspended in October 2010, when the President of Panama Ricardo Martinelli considered that the conditions for a trade agreement were not appropriate.

This agreement will help Colombia promote Panama to become a member of the economic group Alianza del Pacífico, whose members are Mexico, Peru, Chile and Colombia.
