Panama looks to France talks

- AFP, PANAMA CITY

Jan 6, 2017-

Panama said Tuesday it will hold talks with France in the coming days, after Paris confirmed the Central American country was back on its blacklist of tax havens because of the Panama Papers leak. The discussions were to highlight progress Panama has made in boosting transparency and cooperation in tax matters, Panama’s foreign ministry said in a statement. France’s economy ministry confirmed that it was following through with an April decree putting Panama back on its blacklist following the Panama Papers revelations. The country had previously been removed from the list in 2012. The disclosures, which came from a massive data leak from a Panamanian law firm, showed how many of the world’s wealthy stashed assets in offshore companies shielded from tax scrutiny. (AFP)
