Who we are

The hub function of Panama creates a lot of business opportunities for Dutch companies. Although a significant number of companies are already present in Panama, mainly small and medium enterprises (SME) often do not take this step yet. One of the issues identified in the roadmap of a company potentially expanding to Latin America, is the lack of an institution that can provide a soft landing for newly arriving companies in Panama. This is where Holland House Panama comes into play. In the form of a bilateral chamber of commerce Holland House offers services to companies interested in expanding their business to Panama, but also provides already existing companies with more and better networking opportunities and increased visibility in the local market. The Holland House is an initiative of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Panama, the Dutch business community in Panama and the Dutch Private Sector.
