Political cooperation

In 1977, Bangladesh supported Panama in the handover of Panama Canal from United States to Panama through the Torrijos–Carter Treaties.[3]

Cooperation in shipping

Economic cooperation

Both Bangladesh and Panama have expressed deep interests in strengthening the bilateral economic activities between the two countries.[6] In 2011, a Bangladeshi business delegation coordinated by the commerce ministry paid a visit to Panama to explore potential ways for expanding bilateral trade and investment.[7]
