From Friday 10 to Sunday 12 April 2015, Prime Minister Mark Rutte will visit Panama, having been invited by President Juan Carlos Varela to attend the Summit of the Americas, the triennial summit of the Organization of American States.

Mr Rutte’s visit will also focus on strengthening the Netherlands’ economic ties with Panama. He will visit the Panama Canal’s Miraflores locks and will lay the foundation stone for the second artificial island that Dutch company Boskalis is creating off the coast of Panama City. Mr Rutte will also kick off a Kingdom-wide trade mission for the maritime and logistics sectors led by Prime Minister Mike Eman of Aruba.
