Jumpstart Your Product Export Sales to Panama

Panama is an attractive market for exporting U.S. agricultural food products.  Its culturally diverse population, geographical location, and love for American food and culture provide for increasing export opportunities for U.S. high value food and beverage products.  In 2020, U.S. agricultural and related products exports to Panama reached $703.3 million.  

Panama has an ambitious public infrastructure plan and an expanding services sector that benefits from the country’s emerging role as a regional hub for trade. The U.S.-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement (TPA) entered into force on October 31, 2012.   

Consumer oriented food products continue to be the most important category of U.S. agricultural exports to Panama.  Panama is the 2nd largest export market in Central America for processed food products from the U.S.
