The government has joined the list of OECD jurisdictions which exchange tax information automatically, but has said that it will only start implementing the new mechanism in 2018.
The Government of the Republic of Panama explained to users of financial services platforms in Panama and the international community, that the country has announced its commitment to implement the mechanism for automatic exchange of information from 2018, and that this will be done strictly done on a bilateral basis, which is mutual and conditional, to ensure the protection of confidentiality, as was announced by President Juan Carlos Varela last September during the 70th General Assembly of the United Nations, in New York.
Both governments have agreed to launch negotiations for the South American country to remove Panama from the list of countries with low or no taxation.
From a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Panama:
"As a result of the official visit to Buenos Aires by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Fernando Nunez Fabrega, a roadmap has been established that will allow Panama to join the group of countries friendly to Argentina on the issue of fiscal transparency.
"The dispute with Nicaragua is over", reported the Panamanian Foreign Ministry.
The agreement came after the president of Panama, Ricardo Martinelli, during his speech at the 68th General Assembly of the United Nations Organization (UN), criticized the intentions of the Nicaraguans in extending their territorial sea.
An agreement signed between the foreign ministries of Costa Rica and Panama was not enough for the Costa Rican truckers to lift the blockade in Paso Canoas, which has gone on for five days.
Juan Carlos Segura, a spokesman for the carriers, said that the 300 trucks at the border will remain in place because the compromise agreed by the ministers is a joke and does not address the abuses of the State Border Service of Panama (SENAFRONT).
Conflicts of interest between carriers and the apathy of the authorities of Costa Rica and Panama have kept the border blocked for all regional trade.
It's not just that immigration and customs officials do not provide a 24 hour service, as is needed, and as occurs at other Central American borders, but that in Paso Canoas, the governments of Costa Rica and Panama are not exercising their authority in a responsible manner, resulting in conflicts for one reason or another, with consequent blockades and closures that produce serious economic losses not only for Panamanians and Costa Ricans, but also for all Central American companies whose imports or exports pass through this border.
The Government and private sector of the country plan to expand their business in Latin America using Panama as its hub.
A press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reads:

The agreement will allow Air France to start three weekly direct flights between the capitals of the two countries in November.
Elsiglo.com reports: "The agreement was signed by Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, from France, and Panamanian Foreign Minister, Fernando Nunez Fabrega at the Palace Quai D'Orsay in Paris, home of the French Foreign Ministry, as part of the tour that the Panamanian foreign minister is conducting in Europe ".
The Colon Free Zone will have to wait for the formation of a bilateral commission to address the method of payment of the $800 million owed to them.
That fact that the commission has not yet been formed means that it is almost impossible that the payment will be made immediately proclaimed the Panamanian leader Ricardo Martinelli after his visit to Venezuela.
