CCS is often associated with a number of illegal activities, including money laundering, illegal transshipment, trademarks and other intellectual property infringements. It is partly a reputation that Panama as a whole has been fighting since the military dictatorship, widely known for its blatant disregard for the law, if not for corruption. Panama`s proximity to Colombia and the increase in illicit drug handling in the region have also fuelled this perception. At the beginning of the 21st century, the canal and close ties with the United States were still significant features of Panama`s economy, but in the past these characteristics have hindered Panama`s participation in regional integration. Although Panama is part of the Central American integration system, a large-scale political agreement, it has refused to join the Central American common market and has instead relied on the canal and the major U.S. economy as an economic anchor. Since independence, Panama has had a fully dollarized monetary system and has benefited from the unilateral trade preferences of the United States established by the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (CBERA), the Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA) and the Generalized System of Preferences (SPG).24 These historical circumstances have provided little incentive for Panama to become a more open economy. It was only since joining the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 1997 that Panama began to reduce tariffs, an important step in the preparation of a free trade agreement with the United States.

However, successful implementation of the strategy requires coordinated financial and technical resources between international and U.S. humanitarian organizations. A U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) project is already in place to support Panama`s transition to more open trade. It has two important initiatives: supporting the implementation of the free trade agreement and helping Panama to adapt sectorally to increasing the competitiveness of international trade. In the first case, the USAID project contributed to the preparation and dissemination of a product explaining the benefits of the free trade agreement and how Panama could better access the U.S.

market with its specific products. The Panamanian dollar economy has been a cornerstone of its long-term economic stability. It has protected Panama from currency risks, currency asymmetries and speculative attacks in other developing countries and eliminated the monetization of deficits, thereby reinforcing fiscal constraints and price stability.

At the beginning of the 112th Congress, the review of free trade agreements to implement laws for Colombia, Panama and South Korea was part of a broader trade policy legislative agenda, which included the re-budgeting of Trade Adjustment Assistance (AAT) programs. Two issues needed to be resolved if the legislation were to proceed. First, Congress had to draft a TAA bill that would garner enough support between the two houses. Second, due to strong differences of opinion and growing mistrust between legislative and executive branches, a legislative pathway was needed to ensure the adoption of the three implementing laws and the legislation of the TAA13.
