TODAY PANAMA – In a meeting with private sector representatives, President Varela said he will not establish new taxes over the next four years.

The president, Juan Carlos Varela, made a commitment to the business sector to not execute any reform to the tax code in the remaining years of his administration. In order to finance the Government Strategic Plan for 2019, which envisages an investment of $19 billion, he assured that the state will generate the necessary resources as it would be enough “… to put the house in order and not commit acts of corruption.”
