At 2:45pm local POTUS arrived at the ballroom in RIU hotel for a roundtable discussion at the CEO Summit of the Americas, where pool had been holding.

Seated on stage, from left to right is Mexico President Pena Nieto, Brazil President Rousseff, Panama President Varela, and POTUS.

Varela, in preliminary remarks, said he wanted the theme of the summit to be “Equity and Prosperity,” according to the simultaneous translation.

Will file updates on merits as event continues.

Also, pool passes along the tweet from the Panama Canal’s official, authorized Twitter feed with a message from POTUS in the guest book after this morning’s visit:

“The Panama Canal is a testament to human ingenuity and vision. The world thanks Panama for its stewardship of this vital link to our shared prosperity. “

[Signed] Barack Obama
