Trade between the countries currently totals about US$5.2 million (euro4.4 million) per year, mostly from Singapore's sales.
Panamanian lawmakers would have to ratify the agreement once it is signed and agree on a starting date, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry said.
Panama currently has trade agreements with El Salvador and Taiwan, and recently concluded negotiations with Chile. Talks with the United States are currently hinging on revisions to agriculture and livestock health regulations.
