The lifting of the strike does not eliminate the negative effect, unprecedented for the economy.

This guy “gets it”, and there is a pathway to a solution. I would love an audience with him.

Migration flows have accompanied Panama since long before the colonial period and have been fundamental in the current sociocultural and economic construction of the country. Despite this weight in society, the Panamanian State has not had –and does not have– a coherent integration policy for migrants arriving in the country, …
