President Juan Carlos Varela will be boarding the presidential jet on Saturday, May 12 on route to two official missions. The first will be to the United Kingdom to meet with Prime Minister Theresa May. The meeting is described as historic by Panama authorities as Varela will be the first Panamanian president to be received by a British Prime Minister.
He will also meet with high-level business leaders to discuss investment in the Isthmus and with British airlines to promote Panama as a gateway to Latin America, before moving to Israel, on May 18, to hold meetings with different authorities in that country and with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said government spokesman Luis Miguel Hincapié.
