Expocomer sets its goal

Event organizers announce that 850 companies will participate in an exposition that is projected to generate over $117 million in business.

The Panama Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture (CCIAP) looks to receive nearly 850 businesses at its 31st Expocomer fair, where exhibitors and buyers from thirty some countries will meet from April 17 to 20, said its organizers in Santo Domingo.

The CCIAP expects that around $117 million will be made in transactions at the fair, among the represented sectors of food and beverage, textile, technology, construction and services.

Central America, with 32% of the exhibitors, and Asia, with around 31%, will be the two regions sending the majority of the industrialists to attend the meeting, along with companies from South America (nearly 20%) and North America (12%), whereas the least will be arriving from Europe (about 5%) and Africa, with less than 1% representation by private enterprise.

The CCIAP Economic Affairs Director, Manuel Ferreira, invited all the Dominican entrepreneurs to visit this multi-sector event and highlighted the qualities that Panama offers as an ideal business setting, describing it as “a market that may be small, but is strategically very important.”
