Panama Number Plates

Panama’s missing license plates mess may be on the verge of solution.

After nearly a year of new cars without plates, and others going month’s without stickers, the Transport Authority (ATTT) is looking to an efficient German solution.

Jorge Ricardo Fabrega, director of the ATTT, said on Friday that he will make a decision this week.

Fabrega said the authority asked the Vocational School of Chapala for a quotation in February.
He said on TV had five months with the the request in their hands before he was scheduled to begin the process of issuing invitations to others to tender for the manufacture of the license plates.

“Three months ago I called the director of Chapala and asked how things were proceding and two weeks ago called him again before initiating the process to have a plan B, which I already have, “Fabrega said.

“If Chapal cannot fulfill its responsibility, we’ll do what we must do for citizens to have their plates.”

Fabrega said there is a German company in Panama that manufactures and sends plates to different countries of Latin America.
