Wednesday, March 8th, first day of the conference was exciting as attendees from many jurisdictions across the globe from Dubai, UAE to Panama, ROP, from the U.S.A. and all around the Caribbean came together at the Hilton Hotel here on Avenida Balboa in beautiful Panama City, Panama.  Discussions ranged from concerns about tax consequences involving cross boarder transactions to legal  structures to facilitate succession planning for family members in different countries.  Also how FATCA and CRS requirements are stifling the banking and investment culture for U.S. private investment in the region.  Now, day two begins and I have more to come.  Be Well.
