Regulation worries postal firms in Panama

The draft plan of a legislative bill to regulate Panama's postal sector will create "uncertainty and concern" with respect to investment and legal security in the postal sector.

Thursday, June 5, 2008

The companies, members of the Association for the National and International Transport of Parcels and Packages (Atepani), claim that the Management of Mail and Telegrams (Cotel) intends to become an organization that is "judge and jury," since it will regulate the service in which it is also a participant.
Cotel director Marta Amado denies the charge. She says the aim is simply to "bring order to the Panamanian postal sector, which has become obsolete."
