The Minister of Economy and Finance, Frank De Lima, recently met with various authorities in the UK at which he explained the country’s economic prospects and established closer ties with businessmen of the European nation for a future visit to the isthmus.
The first meeting was with the UK Secretary of the Treasury, Davis Gauke, who was told of the main achievements in the country to be one of the first economies in Latin America, and they also took the opportunity to discuss the progress of both countries on the issue of the double taxation agreement.
The second meeting was with Roger Glifford, who will be the Lord Mayor of London. He was also given details concerning the sectors of the economy that are generating growth and coordinated the visit of a group of London businessmen to Panama in 2013, who, he said, have shown an interest in economic development of the country.
Both meetings were described by Minister De Lima as “highly productive”.
The visit to London by Minister de Lima is part of a working tour to meet with officials of European governments and the United States to strengthen relations on economic and financial matters.
