A group of 10 Canadian legislators are holding preliminary meetings in Panama this week following an early get-together with their Panamanian counterparts in Ottawa.
The Government of Panama started consultations with the national productive sector, prior to the upcoming formal launch of the negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement with Canada.
The first round of negotiations will take place in Ottawa from October 27 - 31, said a spokesperson for MICI.
Important progress was made in negotiations for goods and access of service providers and investors of both countries.
In 2007 Canada was the tenth most frequent user of the Panama Canal and that same year bilateral trade reached 115 million dollars.
