Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Employment prospects for expats in Panama and those wishing to move there is likely to soar in 2011 as the country heads for a skills shortage.
Some 34 major infrastructure projects are getting underway and are creating 34,000 direct jobs, according to government officials.
The construction of the first Metro line in the country in Panama City will employ some 3,000 people from 2011 to 2013. Work also begins next year on the third set of locks for the Panama Canal extension, needing some 6,000 workers.
