Other countries to be certified included Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Panama, according to the US embassy in Panama City.
Price is the determining factor when buying shrimp in the U.S., and is even more important than the country of origin.
Panama is now officially certified to export shrimp to the United States.
The country sold $4,578 million worth of goods abroad in the first 5 months of the year, 26.8% more than in the same period in 2010.
Panama was one of 16 nations that complied with the demanding legal and regulatory requirements in the U.S. for exporting shrimp there.
