Panama becomes top venue for business events
This year was a big year for travel to Panama: the nation had forecast the arrival of some 2.2 million international visitors by year’s end, while the 126 business events due to take place in the country this year have nearly doubled last year’s 66 gatherings.
But despite the surge, tourism authorities in the country are confident the best is yet to come. Key to maintaining growth, says Panama’s Vice Minister of Tourism Ernesto Orillac, is the “transformation” the country is currently experiencing in its public works.
To help build on visitor numbers from North America and Europe, Panama is also constructing five new international airports.
