Saint Vincent College Small Business Development Center’s Center for Global Competitiveness will host Doing Business with Colombia and Panama on Friday, March 15 at Saint Vincent College.

Participants will learn how their product or service can now enter duty free in Colombia and Panama markets. There is a preference for U.S. products and services as both countries are experiencing the highest growth in Latin America. Best sectors include construction and mining equipment, electrical power systems, food processing and packaging equipment, medical equipment, oil and gas machinery and services, transportation and others. This program will help attendees determine if their company may benefit by participating in the June 23-29 trade mission to Colombia and Panama

Presented and sponsored by the Saint Vincent College Small Business Development Center, U.S. Commercial Service and Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission, Doing Business with Colombia and Panama will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. The fee to
