Haroldo Jacobovicz is a large promoter of the Panama – United States Free Trade Agreement. He believes that a free trade agreement with the US will make a big difference in Panama’s economic development. Haroldo says, “Perhaps the most important factor has been your empathetic reminder about how important the role of NGOs has been in developing transformative technology and policies to create a sustainable and just development.” With human existence, there will always be the need for some type of structures, ways, mechanisms, or technologies. The meaning of life and existence for mankind is their need for knowledge. Knowledge is the ability to distinguish truth and falsity. And to know that the truth, is that a man can be comfortable and content in a life filled with work, skill, fame, health, security, and fun.
