Trade through the Colon Free Trade Zone improved during the first quarter of 2018 with over $2.86 billion in re-exported goods and $2.4 billion in imports.
If the math is correct, that is $347.8 million more than the 2.5 million re-exported during the same period in 2017 and a 7.7 percent increase in imports.
Products included electronics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, perfumes and cosmetics, clothing, metals and alcoholic beverages, destined for the United States, Panama, Colombia and Costa Rica. Most of the imports arrived from the United States, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Mexico and France.
The growth is largely attributed to a diversification of merchandize and business partners.
