CDS Global Services

Global Services are one of the work areas of the City of Knowledge, where there are international quality organizations operating in different specialties of this sector. The evolution of international trade has led to the dynamic growth of Global Services, which is intensive in the use of human capital and knowledge.

Integrating Global Services with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is a crucial factor that facilitates entrepreneurial dynamism and improves the competitiveness of the Panamanian economy worldwide.

During this activity we invite you to participate in the “Community of Knowledge of Global Services”.

In a knowledge community people work collaboratively in a specialized knowledge, sharing lessons learned and problems of a sector through a continuous interaction that strengthens relationships. The community has a role in publicizing the work of the group and observing its implementation. This would be one of several similar activities that serve to strengthen the community.
