PANAMA CITY.- Panamanian Minister of Environment Mirei Endara announced today that she will leave office on March 31, and will be substituted by Deputy Minister Emilio Sempris.

"As I have already explained to the honorable president, from March 31, I must leave office as the Minister of Environment, for which my family has lent me in recent years," Endara said, without providing many details, an official activity in the foothills of the volcano Barú, in the western province of Chiriquí.

Endara started in 2014, jointly with the Administration of Juan Carlos Varela, in the managing position of the National Environment Authority (ANAM), an entity that in 2015 was registered as ministry.

The announcement was made in an act of signing two Executive Decrees that establish the principles, rules and procedures for concessions of services and licenses of operation of green tourism in protected areas administered by the Ministry of Environment, and recognize the legal status of community-based organizations.
