Sarkozy gets the message: Panama is no tax haven

Friday, November 18, 2011

Ricardo Martinelli, the president of Panama, announced that France will remove Panama from the list of tax havens.

After a meeting with his French counterpart Nicolas Sarkozy, Martinelli said that bilateral relations are “at the high point of their history”.

In what was his first visit to France as president, Martinelli spent much of his time in meetings and social gatherings with French business leaders as an antidote to the tension that was generated after Sarkozy announced at the G20 gathering that Panama was in the list of tax havens.
