Panamanian Textile Manufacturers Request Incentives

Panama's textile industry association has asked the government to provide tax incentives in order to maintain production levels.

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Augusto Corro, president of the association, indicated that the sector is experiencing severe economic problems that put its survival at risk: "We don't want the sector to disappear so we are asking for exemption from taxes on machinery and inputs".

Laestrella.com.pa comments that, "the difficulties faced by Panama's clothing manufacturers include competition for uniform contracts, which are often granted to international companies, thereby eliminating a potential source of revenue for domestic businesses".
