Laestrella.com.pa reports: "The president of the Panama Chamber of Tourism, Jaime Capuzano, highlighted that there are several important tourism projects in development, and said that 'the most important' is the execution of the 2020 Tourism Master Plan, which is considered to be the pillar for development in the country in this sector.
The foreseen work includes changing the carpets, installing new lighting and repairing the roof of the convention center.
The creation of the National Tourism Fund and the adoption of a hotel classification system are some of the provisions that have been established.
The "Master Plan" should become the main tourism development tool in Panama in the next 12 years.
The document prepared by the Spanish consulting firm which won the contract, Tourism and Leisure, will arrive in Panama one month earlier than expected
