Reforestation investment Panama,
An excellent opportunity exists to get a permanent second residency in an up-and-coming country. By investing in a teak plantation in Panama, you can apply for permanent second residency in this nation. Even better, this residency can lead to full citizenship.
Teak has an amazing history of being a strong investment. It has traditionally averaged an annual value growth rate of 5.5% over the past several decades, and it looks like this trend will continue. Even if prices held steadily over the life of the trees (an unlikely event, as they will probably continue to rise), an investment made into a teak plantation now would still net impressive returns, well above many other investment options.
