The re-activation of four major fairs Boquete, La Chorrera, David, and Azuero was confirmed at the plenary session of the National Fairs Commission (Conafer), of the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA). Only the fully vaccinated will be allowed in.  

 At the same meeting the trustees of the  Boquete Flower and Coffee Fair confirmed that the event will take place from January 13 to 23, 2022.

Roberto Guerra, president of Conafer, expressed that with effort and sacrifice the fair activities are resumed, but that it will begin with the largest activities, which will be a catalyst for other festivities.

Samir Gozaine, secretary of the Tourism Cabinet, explained that other verification systems will have to be integrated before the fair activities, such as the QR system, having AIG staff available at the ticket offices of the fair events.

Meanwhile, he said that children under 12 may enter, but with their parents who must have the complete vaccination scheme. They will have to use masks when they move around the facilities, they can only be removed to eat or drink some type of drink.

Luis Oliva, director of the AIG, indicated that it is important to control access to fairs with the QR code.

"We are going to put a stand at each fair authorized by the Ministry of Health, to help people who attend with the QR code and we can train the staff of each fair with this entry system," he said.

The Ministries of Health and Agricultural Development will coordinate the biosecurity measures to be adopted for the development of these events with the fair boards.
