Colon Free Zone: Promotion in Colombia

Posted on 2017-08-10

Businessmen from the Colombo - Panamanian Chamber are analyzing the possibility of organizing a trade mission to the South American country to promote Free Zone services.

Colombian entrepreneurs may not be using the ZLC to bring goods from Asia, but instead, could be trying to do so directly with Asian countries such as China. This is the argument put forward by representatives from the Colombo - Panamanian Chamber of Commerce, who intend to organize a trade mission to promote the advantages offered by the ZLC to trade with Asia.

Eduardo Cristo, president of the Panamanian - Panamanian trade union, told Panamaamerica.com.pa that "... the commercial mission aims to promote the advantage that merchants can have with the goods coming from the ZLC in less time, rather than buying them directly in China."

"... The businessman said that there has been lack of political will between the governments of both countries, as well as lack of promotion of the Panamanian Free Zone."
