Panama has become an important location in the past years, not only because of The Panama Canal, the logistics infrastructure and a great standard of Living. Our country has become one of the premier locations to live and retire. Evidence of this is the great number of new real estate projects that are being developed to cater to this new market of North American and European retirees.
The Panamanian government feels that this success is due to many things, among them, a US dollar based economy, excellent standard of living and security. But, the government also acknowledges that many people have contributed to this success, and among one of the most visionary is Sam Taliafierro, who just 5 years ago began making investments in our country and has become one of the most avid promoters of Panama as a great place to retire and live.
We are very pleased to know that he is under consideration for this award, with the assurance that he is deserving of this award considering his contributions to put Panama on the map for second residence buyers and retirees.
