Office Space Panama

Area Information

Officially the Republic of Panama, this country is located in Central America. Panama is located on the far southern end of Central America, on the isthmus connecting North and South America. The country is bordered by Costa Rica, Colombia, the Caribbean Sea, and the Pacific Ocean. The capital of Panama is Panama City.

Business Information

Panama’s economy is largely based on banking, commerce, tourism, and trading. When the United States turned over the Panama Canal and the many military installations the American government had held, it spurred large construction projects in the country such as Panama Pacifico, which is located at the former Howard Air Force Base. A number of multinational corporations have office space or other facilities in Panama Pacifico, including 3M, DELL, VF Corp., BASF, Samtec, and Caterpillar. Panama’s main exports are bananas, fish, shrimp, and petroleum products.
