PR – on Thursday 25th January 2024, His Excellency Hassan Hadeed, Ambassador of Grenada to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, presented letters of Credence to His Excellency Laurentino Cortizo Cohen, President of the Republic of Panama. He was one of 16 Ambassadors to do so.
Panama is a country rich in copper, mahogany forests, shrimp, and hydropower. Its agricultural products include poultry, pineapples, beef, and pork. Most of its exports in copper, refined petroleum and coal tar oil is done with Ecuador and Guatemala.
Ambassador Hadeed’s accreditation is expected to bolster relations between Grenada and Panama as Grenada seeks to explore cooperation with Latin American countries with whom we have relations but little technical and economic cooperation.
Grenada’s Ambassador expressed Grenada’s strong desire to strengthen relations particularly in the areas of sustainable development, tourism, and economic partnerships, to promote dialogue, facilitate trade and encourage meaningful cultural exchanges between Grenada and Panama.
Grenada and Panama established diplomatic relations on 18th November 1974. The Embassy of the Republic of Panama in Trinidad and Tobago is accredited to Grenada.
