US trade accord delayed in Panama's legislature

Friday, September 14, 2012

The trade agreement between the United States and Panama has been delayed, and will not be signed in October as originally intended, said Panama's head of Trade and Industry, Ricardo Quijano.

"The fact that it took Congress three weeks to deal with a legal project and left this agreement to the side is worrying. This type of project is essential for the implementation of the agreement", Panama's Trade, Industry and Agriculture Chamber, CCIAP, reported.

"Some companies had already made plans to start importing once the agreement came into effect" said Irvin A. Halman, president of CCIAP.
