Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
ITRA Global, one of the largest real estate organizations devoted to the representation of corporate tenants and occupiers of commercial real estate worldwide, has announced that His Excellency José Pacheco Tejeira, Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade for the Panama Ministry of Commerce and Industry, will join the Economic Development Executive Panel at the ITRA Global 2012 Corporate Real Estate Symposium “Doing Business in the Americas” on September 12, 2012 at the Park Plaza Victoria London, 239 Vauxhall Bridge Road, in London.
Debra Stracke Anderson, Chairman Emeritus of ITRA Global and Chairman of the Symposium Committee, says the event will be a tremendous resource for company executives who must navigate a global marketplace dominated by economic uncertainty, quite a change from the boom era of just a few years ago.
“With the addition of Panama to our Economic Development Executive Panel, we bring the perspective of a vibrant and increasingly important market in the Americas,” she explains. “Panama represents a growing market in Latin America for European companies looking to expand their global capabilities.”
The Symposium provides the Ministry with a unique and highly desirable opportunity to interact with executives from around the globe who influence relocation and expansion decisions. The mission of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry is to plan and direct efforts to create, develop and expand trade, industry and resources in the country in compliance with foreign trade policy.
Divided into two sessions, “Doing Business in the Americas” is a premier all-day event featuring top corporate executives and noted economic development officials from around the world. One session will include His Excellency José Pacheco Tejeira as well as other economic development executives from government agencies in the Americas, who will address issues ranging from labor availability and costs, to transportation capabilities, taxation and much more for companies moving into their regions, along with other facility and location factors. The other panel, comprised of top global corporate executives, will help European companies understand how to increase their competitive advantage and profits with corporate real estate and obtain a better understanding of facility availability, build-to-suit and leasing vs. ownership options in the Americas today.
