Offshore Investment, a UK based international publishing and event management company, have announced the inaugural Offshore Investment Conference Panama 2012.
Latin America has leapt to centre stage with growing political self-confidence and economic muscle, displayed in varying degrees throughout the region, by an assertive new spirit of industrial innovation, and social progress.
Panama, a country with just over three million people, has become the most important trading and business hub in the region. Its structure, geographical position, political stability and the characteristics of its economy, combined with its friendly tax and regulation system have seen Panama evolve into one of the most important and respected business and financial centres.
The Conference reveals the vast opportunities in this thriving region.
Day one offers an insight into the political and economic environment and embraces the unique tax and regulatory system, revealing what makes Panama the all-round offshore finance centre of Latin America. Wealth planning techniques will be shared with special focus on the Panamanian private interest foundation, trusts, asset protection strategies and private banking. Furthermore, developments in insurance and e-commerce sectors will be explored. Day one will culminate with lively debate on Panama’s Free Zones, the shipping industry and the future of the Canal.
Day two reveals the implications of international regulation and initiatives and tackles the effects of FATCA and the OECD’s drive for transparency and information exchange, questioning whether bank secrecy is dead. Past, present and future relationships with Europe, Asia and the US will be examined in detail. The event will draw to a close with a series of lectures revealing wealth creation opportunities for the Latin American client as well as the international investor and unlocking the endless possibilities the region has to offer.
