In order to facilitate business in the sector, the Tourism Authority now publishes on its website a list of agencies, lodgings and tour operators operating in the country.

Thursday, March 22, 2018

From a statement issued by the Tourism Authority of Panama: 

Starting from Monday foreign tourists and nationals will be able to consult a list of tourism companies nationwide who are registered with the Tourism Authority of Panama by searching in the information tab of the entity's website.

Gina Valderrama, director of Tourism Investments at the ATP, said that most are MSMEs who offer services to tourists and who are legally established under the law, such as public accommodation services, tour operators, travel agencies, agrotourism farms and tourist guides.

Valderrama explained that the aim of publishing this list is to guide tourists who are planning their next vacation or business trip in the country to confirm the accredited companies, with who they can ask for quotes and in this way guarantee a quality service.

Tourism: Chinese Business Leaders Arrive in Panama

September 2018

To learn about the tourist destination and hold business negotiations with local businesses, on September 13, 10 tour operators from Beijing will be arriving in Panama.

The Tourism Authority of Panama (ATP) reported that " ...this will be the first official contact with local tour operators, following authorization from the Chinese government to start commercial relations with 66 Panamanian A-type companies (tour operators) who met the requirements established after signing a Memorandum of Understanding between both nations to facilitate travel groups from China to Panama."

Interest in Bringing In Chinese Tourists

June 2018

Fifty seven travel agencies and Panamanian tour operators submitted their applications to the ATP to be included in a list of companies authorized to do business in China.

The requests that were received by the Tourism Authority were sent to the Panamanian Foreign Ministry, so that these in turn can be sent to the Chinese authorities. This means that all that remains is for the Asian country to grant approval so that these tourism businesses can start to negotiate with Chinese wholesalers.
