Panama Trade Mission Slated for March 2024

Panama Trade Mission Slated for March 2024

Are you seeking to introduce new products to the local marketplace or to become a representative for new lines of products or services from different countries? Panama is the newest destination now served by Cayman Airways and the Chamber wants to help you to explore this new destination as part of a trade mission scheduled for March 2024. Delegates who attend the mission will attend the Expocomer Trade Show, the largest gathering of exhibitors from around the world in Central America. https://www.expocomer.com/en/

Establishing different trade routes is vital for Cayman’s ongoing success and resiliency. In June 2023 Cayman Airways opened a direct flight to Panama which provides many exciting opportunities for trade. President Nelson Dilbert and CEO Wil Pineau joined the CAL and government delegates with the purpose of connecting with the American Chamber of Commerce in Panama to discuss a future trade mission. The trade mission in March 2024 is the result of their efforts, building on earlier trade missions beginning in the mid-2000s when CAL first opened the route. Several members traveled on these missions and created new trade links, many of which are in operation to this day.

With significant increases in the cost of living and the cost and doing business, more direct options for trade are certain to offer new opportunities to local businesses, who will be able to cut costs by cutting out unnecessary intermediaries.  The trade mission package will include admission to the Expocomer Trade Show hosted by the Panama Chamber of Commerce, an optional trip to the Free Trade Zone and the Panama Canal, transportation, hotel accommodations, and a welcome reception. If you are interested in attending, please contact Wil Pineau at 743-9122 or [email protected]

Our mission will use the Chamber’s contacts to link small, medium-sized, and growing businesses here with important suppliers, government officials, and trade associations there.
