66 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, welcomed Samuel Lewis Navarro, first Vice-President of Panama and Panamanian Minister for Foreign Affairs, on 9 February 2009 in Brussels. Political relations between the EU and Panama have been shaped by the San José Dialogue, which was launched at an EU/Central America Ministerial Meeting in Costa Rica in 1984. Panama is a signatory to the 1993 EU/Central America Framework Cooperation Agreement and to the Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement signed in 2003. It sits in as an observer on the EU/Central America negotiations with a view to an Association Agreement, including a free trade area. The EU is the top foreign investor in Panama, the leading aid donor to the country and its third trading partner. Panama has been allocated 38 million euro from the EU budget for the years 2007-2013. The objectives are: to improve social cohesion focusing on social policies and services in order to help reduce poverty; and to support regional integration with the Central American countries with a view to sustaining Panama's efforts to develop policies in line with those of the rest of the region.
