On Monday, August 19, the REALTOR® Association of Sarasota and Manatee (RASM) Global Business Council welcomed leaders from ACOBIR, the Panamanian Association of Real Estate Brokers and Developers, for an inbound trade mission.
Last year at the National Association of REALTORS® Convention and Expo, representatives from the RASM and ACOBIR met to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The signing of this agreement sets forth the understanding of both associations related to connecting and establishing a mutually beneficial relationship for its members.
As part of this relationship between, the RASM GBC invited Luis Pimentel, ACOBIR President, and Xenia Kwai Ben, Executive Director of ACOBIR, to visit the Sarasota and Manatee area.
They started their day with a tour of Port Manatee, the closest U.S. deepwater seaport to the Panama Canal, and one of the 144 maritime routes that travel through the Canal.
