Message from RIAC Chair Pro Tempore 2013

Message from RIAC Chair Pro Tempore 2013
To Panama it is a cause of pride to receive the Chair Pro Tempore of the Inter-American Competitiveness Network for the 2012-2013 period. Thanks to the work of RIAC member countries throughout the years, and the tireless support of the Organization of American States, we grow stronger every time and more capable of facing the challenges we face on the road to becoming ever more competitive countries.

During our Chairmanship, Panama will be committed to continuing the work undertaken by Colombia. Already, we urge more countries to share their experiences with others, in order to increase productivity and the wealth of our countries. In this way, we promote the transfer of skills and cooperation in the region.

We are convinced that our countries have great potential, and spaces such as this give us the opportunity to talk about innovative methods we can apply or replicate to improve competitiveness and the business climate.We give a special thanks to our sister country Colombia for the great work conducted during its term as Chair Pro Tempore of the RIAC 2011-2012, and as host of the VI Americas Competitiveness Forum.

Finally, I take this opportunity to invite you to join us next year at the VII Americas Competitiveness Forum, to be held in Panama City. Panama waits for you with open arms!
