Project Description
The objective of the Technical Cooperation (TC) is to support the Government of Panama in the design and the implementation of policies that identify value-added activities that could be developed and improved by utilizing the logistics infrastructure and the expanded Canal. This effort will ultimately position the country as a more competitive economy in the region and the world. Specific Objective. To strengthen the planning capacity and to support in the design and implementation of multi-sectoral government policies, specifically in areas where there are productivity losses, such as the Colon Free Trade Zone. To achieve this, we will develop: a national plan for productive development, a growth diagnostic of Panama, and a strategic plan to reintegrate the Colon Free Trade Zone and other special economic zones with the productive chains of the rest of the economy. These reports will be used as inputs for capacity building workshops for government officials and the private sector.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
