WTO creates court for Panama-Colombia dispute
The World Trade Organization has established a trade court to find a solution to a dispute between Panama and Colombia.
Part of the process is to get Colombia to withdraw a tax on garments and footwear re-exported from Panama's Colón free trade zone towards Colombia, said Diana Salazar, Panamanian Minister for Trade and Industry.
The tax has accounted for 20 percent, or $1.5 billion, in losses reported by the free trade zone in the first half of the year.
