Russian Investment Reaches Panama

Sustained growth of the economies of both countries is the starting point of a growing interest from entrepreneurs and investors.

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

In addition, several other factors foster Panama’s chances of attracting Russian investors, including the presence of more than 3 thousand Panamanians who studied in Russia and speak the language.

Panama is increasingly getting more tourists from Russia, while expressions of interest for investment in the Central American country are growing, especially in real estate.

Mario A. Muñoz stressed in his article in Martes Financiero that "Russia is one of the countries from which the $2.401 billion Panama received in 2008 in foreign direct investment came from, an increase of 25.9% compared to the previous year, according to data from the General Accounting Office. This total excludes the investment of foreign entrepreneurs residing in the country."
