Corruption and conflict of interest are the biggest obstacles to achieving a post-pandemic sustainable economic recovery says Panama’s Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture(Cciap)  which has relaunched its Respect  My Future campaign.

“But this process requires the strengthening of  Panama’s foundations and its constitutional, institutional, and social principles," says the Chamber.

The campaign has the purpose of raising awareness and rescuing civic and moral values and has the support of the National Commission for Civic and Moral Values ​​ and the Ecumenical and Interreligious Committee of Panama, reiterated the Cciap, in its weekly newsletter.

According to the Cciap, #RespetaMiFuturo focuses on respect, as an inescapable condition for any country that seeks to advance. Respect, in turn, encompasses values ​​such as ethics, freedom, leadership, loyalty, tolerance, inclusion, justice, honesty, equality, equity, the group emphasized.

"If as a union we have decided to protect the campaign, it is because we are convinced that the main threats to social and economic reactivation are corruption and conflicts of interest, which tarnish positive works and good examples," it added.

The campaign has the support of the mass media and opinion leaders in the country.
