Medellin as a Model for Panama City

Medellin is increasingly turning into a Model city for other Latin American cities. The most recent and maybe most prominent example: Panama City!

As Newsroom Panama reported on Saturday, the mayor of Panama City Bosco Ricardo Vallarino took off to Medellin to meet with his peer in Medellin Alonso Salazar.

According to Newsroom Panama, the purpose of the trip is for Bosco to learn from his counterpart in Medellin about policies put in place in Medellin in areas of social planning, mobility, coexistence, openness, recreation and sports. Rumors are that the two mayors will also talk about garbage collection, which has created a lot of grief in Panama City lately.
