The Falkland Islands Government has welcomed an announcement from the Panamanian National Assembly approving the formation of the Falkland Islands–Panamanian Inter-parliamentary Friendship Group.
The official release says that In September four Panamanian parliamentarians visited the Islands at the invitation of the Falkland Islands Government.
The establishment of the Inter-parliamentary Friendship Group, which will promote relationship-building, dialogue and mutual cooperation between the Falklands and Panama, was a direct result of that visit.
FIG’s Chief Executive Keith Padgett commented: “This is a fitting next step following on from the visit by the Panamanian parliamentary delegation to the Islands last month.
“I am confident the next Legislative Assembly will look forward to building on this and progressing the relationship between the Falkland Islands and Panama.”
