The General Manager of PROCOMER, Pedro Beirute Prada, mentioned how these types of activities are an effort to promote the Costa Rican offer both in Panama and in the region, generating business opportunities for new products and/or services and strengthening the presence of Costa Rican brands in these markets.

“Panama is one of our main business partners and Expocomer is a fair with a long history where the main players in the region meet. For companies, these types of activities are a space to generate networking, as well as business leads. In addition, for companies that are already exporting, it allows them to have a brand presence and even diversify sales channels,” Beirute said.

In 2021, precisely, exports to Panama reached US$622.8 million, ranking as the second export market in Central America and the number 5 trading partner for the country in terms of value, above countries such as the United Kingdom, China or Spain.

In addition to the exhibition of products by the participating companies, the fair serves as a setting for business conferences where companies can make appointments to meet with representatives of the firms participating in the event.
