The Government of the Republic of Panama recognized that the country, as a center for prestigious international and financial services, needs to preserve and enhance its competitiveness and increase the attraction of foreign direct investment, so it must strengthen its legal and regulatory framework.
It is expected that economic growth will increase slightly to 5.1% in 2017, and about 5.5% in the medium term, supported by the expanded Canal and developing investment projects.
The bill submitted by the Executive aims to increase legal certainty and transparency of processes through improved tender mechanisms.
The Law on Legal Stability for Investments has been approved, which aims to improve confidence in the country preventing changes to incentive schemes granted to foreign companies.
The law enhances competitiveness and promotes a business climate in the country, says the government.
