This potential continues to grow in the breadth of its offer and in its quality of service, thanks to a number of initiatives of its members, which include updating the human resources that work in hotels, clinics abroad, importing talent to enhance national talent and global standards contribute to the entire market with international chains of the highest prestige.
Panama as a transit country and open to foreign investment, maintains a constant growth. The national economic development has allowed the promotion of quality tourism services in the main points of the geography and the construction and operation of new hotels. It is highly relevant that the World Economic Forum has declared Panama as the fourth country in the continent in terms of competitiveness. This recognition derives, to a large extent, from the hotel growth of the country. The training, innovation and sustainability of the destination are their objectives, so new members should join to achieve that goal and help Panama become paradise between two seas that seduces and attracts the visitor.
