Panama: Cooperation Agreement between Caja de Ahorros and the Public Registry

Caja de Ahorros has signed a cooperation and training agreement with the Public Registry of Panama that seeks to bring about judicial, scientific and technical exchanges and support in areas of interest for both institutions.

Thursday, April 24, 2008

The agreement establishes that the Public Registry will have at its disposal accredited collaborators of the "Panamanian Family Banks", and access to a joint system through the WEB. It will allow the signees to consult information on official certifications related to registrations of companies, farms, boards of directors and legal representatives of companies and private foundations, powers of attorney, representative agents and goods registered in the name of companies and persons; as well as all of the information in their data base.
Each partner has promised to do the necessary personnel training.
The goal is to improve service to the clientele of the two institutions by speeding up procedures in judicial offices and minimizing the use of paper to expedite the process quickly and securely.
