According to the Automobile Distributors Agency Association of Panama (ADAP), since the beginning of the year, sales have been reporting decreases; 28% in January, 18% in February and 12% in March.

Edith Castillo wrote for Prensa.com: “Automotive Finance Manager, Ricardo de Roux, hopes that the market will level off for the second half of the year. 'It is not going to increase, but we do expect some stability because the elections are over, a new government will take office and these elements favor consumer decision-making processes’.”
