The mission will include business-to-business matchmaking appointments with local companies, as well as market briefings and networking events.

Target sectors holding high potential for U.S. exporters include: industry security and safety, intrusion protection, burglary and robbery, fire protection and suppression, surveillance, access control, personal protection, workplace safety, security risk assessment consulting, and law enforcement products and services. In addition, opportunities exist for companies offering port and infrastructure security. In both Colombia and Panama the governments and private sector are investing some $30 billion in infrastructure projects, heavily focused on road projects, airport modernization, sea and river port developments, and rail line upgrades. As a result, the mission will include port and infrastructure security as a focus.
