Full mission programme

Opportunities in Panama
Due to its central location, excellent maritime and airline connections and favourable business climate, Panama is frequently referred to as the ‘Hub of the Americas’. The high-income & high growth country in Central-America is a regional trade, logistics and financial center that has attracted many Dutch businesses (NL is currently the No. 3 investor in Panama). Thanks to the excellent connectivity and the business climate for technology companies Panama is well on its way to becoming a Digital Hub. It is on the crossroads of 7+1 submarine fiber optic cables (the Google Curie cable is under construction) providing reliability of data and voice transmissions and the highest fixed internet speed in Latin-America. Together with beautiful technology parks and fiscal, migration and labour incentives for tech companies, it is the ideal place to do business for Dutch companies in digital technologies!
