The agricultural sector, producers, merchants and distributors of the country are concerned about the crisis that Panama is going through with the closures and protests for two weeks, since there is a shortage of vegetables and legumes, mainly.

According to Alicia Jiménez, president of the Federation of Chambers of Commerce of the Republic of Panama (Fedecamaras), she calculated that the balance of losses in the country’s production chain, as a result of this situation, is almost $134 million in these 10 to 12 days of access road closures.

“On a global level, among all of us who have to do with the productive sector, the losses amount to approximately $500 million, just these days. The country cannot afford the luxury of a period of rather timid economic reactivation that we have had, because there has been no frontal sidro; we never have a strategic plan from the Government for an economic reactivation,” he said.

Jiménez considered that there has been a gap between detecting a problem, making decisions and implementing decisions and that is the result we have today.
