Panama: Foreign Direct Investment Up 6%

Posted on 2017-09-22

Of the $2,844 million received in the first semester, almost 70% corresponded to reinvestment of profits of foreign companies.

Foreign direct investment received by the country in the first six months was 6% higher than that registered in the same period in 2016.

Prensa.com reports that "...Most of the investment - 66.6% - corresponds to reinvestment of profits, that is to say, profits of foreign companies that remain in Panama, instead of being remitted to their countries of origin."

"...8% corresponds to the purchase of shares of Panamanian companies and the remaining 25.4% is grouped as 'other capital'."
