Panama exports a wide variety of products. The Georgia Tech Panama Logistics Innovation and Research Center developed a tool that provides statistics, and helps visualize trends and characteristics of the goods exported from Panama. The tool also provides information about the destination of Panamanian goods as well as ports of exit. During 2018, the value of exports, excluding those of the Colon Free Zone, totaled USD 672 million, 1.9% more than the previous year.
The most important exports in terms of FOB (Free On Board) value were those of Tariff Code; fruits and fish and crustaceans, molluscs and other aquatic invertebrate. The Netherlands was our largest export partner.
The tool has the following sections:
- Panama Exports: shows the total value (FOB) of goods exported from Panama throughout the years.
- Points of exit of Panama: shows the main exit points of exports.
- Panama Exports by Country: shows the top trade partners.
- Panama Exports by Commodity Group: this section shows the top export products from Panama (Harmonized System Products).
