CABEI supports Panama in listening to citizen proposals to achieve the "Bicentennial Pact: Closing Gaps".


Through the execution of this initiative sponsored by the Bank, we hope to support the search for solutions that will benefit the Panamanian population.

Panama City, November 02, 2021. – Specialized consultants will provide advice and support in the process of dialogue and construction of the "Bicentennial Pact: Closing Gaps" in Panama thanks to non-reimbursable technical cooperation in the amount of US$36,750 approved by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI).

This initiative, led by the Ministry of the Presidency within the framework of Panama's Bicentennial, aims to implement a new national social pact through a process of actively listening to citizens' proposals in order to reach consensus on solutions to the main problems afflicting the nation.

CABEI Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi, emphasized that "supporting initiatives that promote transparency and citizen involvement in the joint search for solutions will always be important for CABEI, since it represents a great opportunity in democracy for all people to express their ideas on an equal footing".

The consultation was carried out in the first quarter of 2021 through a technological application that allows focusing on possible solutions to close existing gaps and strengthen the administrative processes of Panamanian institutions in the short, medium, and long term. A final document with the results is expected at the end of this year.
