Doing Business in Panama

This website contains a collection of published reports designed to help U.S. companies understand the opportunities and challenges of doing business in Panama.

The content of these reports comes from our 2013 Country Commercial Guide (CCG) for Panama, which the U.S. Embassy’s Commercial Service publishes annually under the authorization of the U.S. Government’s Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee. However, such sections as Top Prospects are updated as new opportunities (or, in some cases, challenges) arise - so we advise U.S. companies to visit early and often.

You can click on the reports on the left hand menu or just click through the following sections:

Finally, while our reports serve as a good overview for getting started on doing business in Panama, we encourage you to take advantage of our 105 U.S. Export Assistance Centers (USEACs) located throughout the U.S. to discuss how we can help you sell your products and services overseas and defend your interests should challenges arrive.
