The Ministry of Commerce and Industries (MICI) of Panama has entrusted to Opera Global Business the development of the Women Entrepreneurexport programme, where about twenty women can make the internationalisation of their company a reality.
Thanks to the work with Opera Global Business for the General Management Export Promoting of MICI and with the backing by the Support Programme of Strengthening and Modernization of the Ministry of Commerce and Industries of PNUD, these entrepreneurs export their products belonging to the agriculture sector, agroindustrial and handcrafted sectors to any part of the world. This allows an improvement in gender equality, the competitiveness and women empowerment within the export sector of the country, thus contributing to achieve the goals of the Sustainable Development Objectives (SDO5 Gender Equality and SDO8 Decent work and economic growth).
