Business Matchmaking

Save your valuable time and money finding pre-qualified buyers, distributors, licensees, and other business partners with the assistance of our commercial specialists. Let us locate the most qualified Panamanian partners for your company!

Business Meetings

Face-to-face meetings with potential partners are the most effective tools you have to increase exports and expand business operations in Panama. And because Panama is a close (from many U.S. cities non-stop) flight from the U.S., we believe that our Gold Key matchmaking service is a good investment if you believe that there is a market for your goods and services in Panama. U.S. Commercial Service Panama offers a complete package for the businessperson visiting this country to meet with potential business partners.  Prior to your trip we will work with you to identify appropriate agents, distributors, joint venture partners, procurement officials, and others you should meet to accomplish your goals while here.

We will schedule appointments with key contacts on your behalf. Our service includes car and our vetted bilingual drivers/interpreters.
