In brief: Panama

* China’s Shanghai customs office has confirmed that the first shipment of exported Panamanian beef has entered the Chinese market. The 23 tonnes of beef were exported to China by sea on 22 June 2019. The announcement comes two years after diplomatic relations between the two countries were forged. In 2017 Panama became the second country in the sub-region – after Costa Rica – to forge ties with mainland China and break with Taiwan.
