Panama is an exporter of watermelon and other tropical fruits
A recent study performed by a group from Holland may have led Panamanian and Costa Rican officials to consider more joint efforts in expanding their respective agricultural sectors. The study suggested that the two nations could ally to better utilize the respective assets of each nation and compete in the global agriculture markets for certain products.
Costa Rica will start by investing jointly with Panama to augment production of semi-exotic fruits such as honeydew, pineapple, watermelon and others. This could be symbolic of an increasing sentiment that Costa Rica and Panama are friendly neighbors with many similar interests. This news, along with recent free trade meetings and cross-border talks seem to indicate that the two countries could be entering into more symbiotic relations in the future.
