What's being said of Panama

 

By Dafydd Young      

April 26 to May 2 is going to be a busy time for Panama film buffs as they try to figure out how many of the 50 films from around the world they can see at the first staging of the International Film Festival (IFF).

The Festival has released a list of 50 films that will be screened over the week. They include entries from Brazil, Cuba, Peru, Portugal and Argentina that have already received awards at at some of the most prestigious film festivals including Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and San Sebastian.

 

Background: about the survey 

The Worldwide Cost of Living is a bi-annual (twice yearly) Economist Intelligence Unit survey that compares more than 400 individual prices across 160 products and services. They include food, drink, clothing, household supplies and personal care items, home rents, transport, utility bills, private schools, domestic help and recreational costs. The survey itself is a purpose-built internet tool designed to calculate cost-of-living allowances and build compensation packages for expatriates and business travelers. The survey incorporates easy-to-understand comparative cost of living indices between cities. 

 

Este país es uno de los destinos más visitados de Latinoamérica

El pacífico: la belleza de la naturaleza se refleja en el agua del océano.
La octava maravilla: el cruce de grandes embarcaciones en las esclusas de Miraflores es un espectáculo que debe ser admirado.
Todo esto hace de este destino uno de los países más inolvidables.

 

Go for the Canal…Stay for Everything Else.

That’s what the New York Times is saying about Panama. The publishing giant’s travel section listed Panama as number one out of 45 Places to Go in 2012. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones don’t disagree. They are on vacation in Panama this week with their family.

Tourism plays a role in the Panamanian government’s plans to grow the economy according to Ernesto Orillac, vice minister of tourism authority. “We have three major industries,” he said, “logistics and the Panama Canal; baking and financial services; and tourism. Although tourism represents a little less than 10 percent of the economy, it is growing at a good pace.

We have many projects in the pipeline and intent tp position Panama as a major destination.
