Join Enterprise Florida for an Export Sales Mission to Panama. Panama serves not only as a maritime and air transport conduit between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, but is known as a hub for international trade, banking and services. Panama’s dollar–based economy has been among the fastest-growing in Central America, primarily due to the expansion of the Panama Canal along with other countrywide infrastructure developments.
Florida’s trading relationship with Panama is significant as the state accounted for 26% of the nearly $7 billion worth of U.S. merchandise exports to Panama in 2018. Panama also ranks as Florida’s 12th largest total trade partner among all the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. With strong demand for made-in-the-USA goods, Florida companies are well-positioned to benefit from this growing market and Enterprise Florida’s Export Sales Mission can provide your company with opportunities to launch or expand your business profile in Panama.
The industry sectors listed below provide the best opportunities for exports from the U.S. to Panama:

The grant will reimburse 100% of the Gold Key Package Registration fee for the first company representative. A separate online application will be provided to companies once they are approved by the USCS and EFI for the Gold Key Package as a small business to determine if they qualify for the grant.
