The objective of the IDB Group Country Strategy with Panama for the period 2021 – 2024 is to support the authorities’ efforts to jumpstart economic recovery, to help Panama consolidate its position as a high-income country over the medium term in an inclusive and sustainable way. Three areas were identified during the dialogue process in which the IDB Group can contribute to this objective in the coming years: (i) modernizing public management; (ii) improving the delivery of basic services; and (iii) reigniting and diversifying productive activity. The IDB Group’s support will be tailored to the country’s needs arising from the health crisis and its social and economic impact, as well as with the process of rekindling growth. Information technology will be considered in each strategic area and the crosscutting issues of gender, diversity, environmental sustainability and climate change adaptation, and institutional strengthening will be addressed.
