Chile and Panama will promote agro-industrial hub and cruise route

The governments of Chile and Panama undertook to promote an agro-industrial hub and a cruise route with the purpose of expanding the commercial relationship between both countries and the region.

As a result of this bilateral meeting, it was agreed that Chile will be the first Latin American ally of the Logistics Hub of Panama, an initiative that will allow the South American nation to benefit from the country’s logistics platform for the redistribution of Chilean food for export, adding value to Panamanian agro-industrial products, thus diversifying its export offer globally.

Additionally, with the strengthening of the bilateral strategic alliance between Panama and Chile, both countries will jointly promote a Pacific-South cruise route, connecting the new cruise terminal in Amador (in the Pacific Ocean) and the Port of Valparaíso, in order to increase tourism between them both.

During the official visit of the Chilean President to Panama, both leaders signed a joint declaration that consolidates the commitments and upcoming actions that ensure the strengthening of the bilateral relationship, such as the signing of agreements on productive chains, customs and humanitarian assistance.
