Colombian Minister of Finance Mauricio Cardenas will meet with his Panamanian counterpart Dulcidio de La Guardia in the United States. The meeting will be held to discuss the Colombian government's decision to include Panama in a list of tax havens. Confirmation of the meeting was published in Colombian newspapers, citing statements by Cardenas issued from Washington. The meeting, said Cardenas, will be "informal." De La Guardia is in the United States attending the annual meeting of the Board of Governors of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
