Phil Edmondston, President UNITED STATES EMBASSY
In these days of love, meditation, peace and generosity, we join with our families and friends and share our traditions that make this holiday season a very special time. This year has been particularly special for me and my family: we had the honor to come to a generous country that received us with open arms, we joined many Panamanian families who faced difficult days with heavy rains and flooding, we lived the generosity of many Panamanians who came together to help their brothers in need. But in all of these situations we could feel the true spirit of Christmas that is experienced when one helps those in need, giving hope to those who have lost it, peace to those need of it, and understanding to everyone on Earth. This Christmas, while giving thanks for our blessings, and in the approaching year 2009, we join together to offer our best wishes of peace, union and prosperity to all Panamanians. Merry Christmas and a very happy 2009!
Barbara Stephenson, U.S. ambassador to Panama
On the occasion of the Christmas holidays, I am pleased to present to the whole Panamanian community and to the many Italians living in Panama my dearest and most affectionate wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2009, even on behalf of the entire Italian Embassy. I am sure that the bilateral relations between our two Countries will keep on strengthening, following the spirit of that traditional and fruitful interaction that bonds Panama to Italy. The year 2008 ends up with the celebration for the 60th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights; 2009 will open with the beginning of the construction of the third system of Locks, an outstanding work for the ACP, which will open new and interesting opportunities for a further political, social and economical growth of the Country. With those feelings, I renew to everybody my warmest wishes for a peaceful and merry Christmas.
Placido Vigo, italian Ambassador to Panama.
