Please Take This Survey on Tourism in Panama

Travel & Tourism By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - A Panamanian graduate student is working on her Master's Degree in Switzerland and she's collecting data for her thesis. I received the following this morning via email from Don Ray Williams in Chiriqui: "A Panamanian student is taking a short anonymous survey to gather data for her Master's Degree in Tourism. Participants should be non-Panamanian and 50 years old or older. The time frame for gathering information is short, so time is of the essence. The URL to participate the survey is chiriquichatter.net/survey/index.php. This is being done for a course in Le Roche, Switzerland." He's trying to help a Panamanian friend of his named Natalie who is working on a Master's Degree. Normally I tend to shy away from these kinds of survey requests because they are often phishing attempts, unless I can independently verify the validity of the request through the student's mentor or professor via direct contact through the university's switchboard. In this case Don Ray's word is good enough for me, especially considering that he knows the student personally, and the survey is anonymous with no request for any kind of personal identifying information. Natalie is the girl on the left, with this snapshot taken as she was about to depart for her studies in Switzerland. In any case, please take the time to take this survey and help this student out. This one is for real. Thanks.

Excellent article. In many areas Panama could benefit by working side-by-side with foreigners.

The most glaring example day-in and day-out is customer service. In general when Panamanians watch other Panamanians in the serice business they gain little ... however by watching service-oriented foreigners there's a lot to be learned.

The biggest example for Panama was their experience with the American canal. Although there were many differences between the American built and operated canal and commercial activity today, the canal experience clearly shows that Panamanians are able to learn and benefit.

To exclude foreigners from working in Panama is to cloister and isolate much of the work force from the modern integrated world.
