Strengthening intellectual property rights (IPRs) was a major U.S. priority, including harmonizing standards at the U.S. level and ensuring Panama`s commitment to a series of international agreements on the protection of intellectual property rights. The most controversial intellectual property issues related to patent exclusivity and pharmaceutical data issues, but Internet piracy has also become a serious problem. Draft US-Panama FTA have adopted the working chapter of the CAFTA-DR language literally. Many members of Congress and others opposed four key aspects of the language. First, it stressed that a country did have to “enforce its own labour laws” instead of defining certain labour standards that needed to be codified and enforced.62 Second, it was the only provision of the work chapter subject to the ESTV combat process (other obligations were unenforceable). Third, the labour (and environmental) provisions had a separate dispute resolution mechanism, separate from the procedure for commercial and other disputes. Critics have accused the labour dispute mechanism of being inferior for many reasons. Fourth, a language that required only the contracting parties to “ensure” that they did not waive or deviate from their labour law obligations was found to be both insufficient and unenforceable.

The rules of origin define goods that can be processed duty-free on the basis of the country of origin of their content. The rules of origin are intended to prevent the transfer of goods from materials from countries outside the agreement. They are particularly relevant to the clothing and textile trade, with very few exports coming from Panama. As with the FTA`s working chapter, the amendments made in the May 10, 2007 agreement, in line with the ideas outlined in the May 10, 2007 agreement, reflect a bipartisan meaning in this regard, although the text recognizes sovereign rights and responsibilities in natural resource management that trade and environmental policies must support each other and be devoted to the goal of sustainable development. The new language therefore strengthens obligations to environmental obligations and their application, and requires that each country buyer benefit from the opportunity to purchase in small batches, reduced travel costs, consolidated shipping, improved shipping times and loans offered by sellers. Sellers benefit from access to small Latin American markets on the same site and reduced tax and transaction costs. Panama benefits from the 20,000 direct jobs created by the CSC and the government revenues they generate. CFZ trade is considered an integral part of Panama`s trade statistics and only products entering the Panamanian economy are considered imports.27 Labour and environmental provisions have been highly controversial topics in trade agreements, with significant differences in Congress and elsewhere on the aggressiveness of language in trade agreements to address these concerns.
