Panama Issues Local Bonds

This is the first time the National Bank performs a local issue in a rolling program of up to $ 300 million.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

The manager of the entity, Dario Berbey, said that "taking advantage of the current climate of interest rates, we are issuing the bonds to take advantage of the difference which occurs between the liabilities and assets at a time when we are providing long-term lending to major sectors of the country, boosting the economy and creating jobs in tourism, energy, infrastructure and agriculture.”

The institution in charge of issuing will be the stock brokerage of the National Bank of Panama.
