Loan to Benefit Panamanian Growth

It was announced last week that the Panamanian government has created a $1.1 billion fund that it expects to eased the credit crisis and to boost investment as the world faces a global economic crisis.

Panama President Martin Torrijos stated that the fund will “grant Panamanians low-cost loans to buy homes and expand businesses”. 

Financing of the new fund, which will come in the form of a loan, is being handled by the Inter-American Development Bank, Andean Development Corp, and National Bank of Panama.  The National Bank – one of two state banks – will oversee the project.  Torrijos called the loan a “preventive measure”.

The fund is a result of a three-month investigation of how the U.S. economic slowdown will affect Panama’s economy.  The Panama Canal is currently the key route for trade between Asia and the eastern U.S.

Resources Being Utilized to Make Panama Safer...

It was announced last week that the countries of Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala and Panama have formed an alliance against organized crime.

The countries have created an alliance of resources and intelligence in order to combat organized crime and drug trafficking, as the four countries are the main subjects in drug smuggling to the U.S.  The ultimate goal is for the Latin American countries to have a shared database that is connected to each country.

The leaders of the four countries met in Panama City in order to discuss drug smuggling and the cartels that enable the practice.  According to the AP, the countries “will share intelligence, strategies and technical information to fight criminal activities including drugs, human trafficking, money laundering and terrorism”. 

It is projected that the sharing of information will benefit each of the countries against drug smuggling operations and other criminal activity.

Property Development Expected to Continue in Panama

The UK’s Hot Property website recently reported about the advantages in owning property in Panama, claiming that the country could again show returns like in 2006.

Panama property offered spectacular growth in the property market from 2006 to 2008. In that time period, property prices were up 48%. In the back half of 2008 growth slowed slightly, but was still positive.

Significant growth is expected again in the near future as Panama is predicted to have long-term appeal to US residents. Currently, Trump Ocean Club condos are under construction and are slated for completion within five years. There is also another development under construction at one of the best Panamanian beaches Maria Chiquita Beach where one-bedroom condos are being sold starting at around $100k.

Panamanian Banks Contribute to Growth in Panama

The UK’s First Post ran an article recently about the advantages of Panamanian banking in a Post-Madoff age.

Panama is one of the best international banking solutions because it allows for secure stashing of money in some of the safest banks in the world.

There is a history of drug dealers and crooks using Panama to launder money, but the unsavory activity has since been cleaned up. Lately, due to the growth in Panama, Venezuelans and Colombians are flocking to Panamanian banks rather than U.S. banks due to the Patriot Act putting limitations on foreign citizens.

Panama adopted Swiss banking laws in the 1970s in addition to the corporate laws of Delaware, the “friendliest business” state. There are over 80 registered banks in Panama that have grown from traffic and trade along the Panama Canal. There is little government regulation, but heavy supervision by owners that have applied stringent lending standards.

Panama Growth May Stumble, Will Survive Ultimately has reported that amid global recession and financial plague, Panama will persevere….

Currently, Panama’s economy has not really been affected by the global recession. However, with more condos to be released onto the market, there will be a number of ‘distressed sellers’ in 2009.

However, the site also claims that there will be another wave of buyers coming to Panama. Many expect young, international buyers as well as companies that will be coming to Panama to set up global operations. Many will be drawn to the nature and the tropical weather, others will be drawn to he fact that Panama City is an international city that is one of the most globalized countries in Latin America since the Panama Canal expansion. 2009 is expected to deliver 3-4% in economic growth…..
