The demand for the Panamanian product is very high because of the quality of the dry grain, which in most cases is free from chemicals therefore increasing its value. Organic products from the indigenous communities of Silico Creek trade well in Switzerland and Romania.
Such is the 2009 forecast by the Exporting Companies Association of Panama, after analyzing June figures.
Finally it seems a solution has been found to the entry restrictions on Nicaraguan beef in the Panamanian market, as part of the conditions imposed on the canal country for trade integration with Central America.
The country's inclusion in the list of fine cacao producers drawn up by the International Cocoa Organization has improved product positioning in the major buyer markets.
The country sold $5.2 million in 2009, up from $2.9 million in 2008.
