The country strategy for Panama 2007-2013 identifies social cohesion as one of the focal areas of cooperation. The general objective of this component is to provide support to reducing poverty, exclusion, social and geographical inequalities through assisting the modernization of the State in the specific areas of local development, social policies and fiscal systems. The European Commission will support the authorities to modernize and strengthen its capacity so as to improve social indicators, to transfer resources to local entities and to reinforce participation of the population.
