GULFPORT — An agreement between airports in Panama and Gulfport should open the door to international cargo flying through south Mississippi.

Officials with the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport and Tocumen International Airport in Panama signed an agreement Thursday.

Local officials say the agreement will allow international cargo to be flown into Gulfport airport, where it will be stored and transported out of an air cargo facility.

Officials say they also will encourage private sector investment in the project, while promoting trade and tourism in the two areas.

A delegation from Panama will spend the next few days meeting with agencies and businesses associated with logistics, higher education, agriculture, security and aquaculture.
