More Delays to Tourism Promotion in Panama

After having canceled the first contest, there has now been a second postponement of the date for receipt of bids in the tourism promotion tender worth $5 million.

Thursday, March 17, 2016

The tender to design and implement a campaign of domestic tourism promotion in Panama has in the past had its reference amounts changed, time limits and specifications changed, and the contest has even been declared void. This time, the process is suffering from a new extension of deadlines.

The request was accepted by the ATP, forcing a change of date for the act which was initially scheduled for March 10, and now will be held on the 28th of this month. "
