Working Lives Panama: Virgilio Athanasiadis

Businessman Virgilio Athanasiadis is the grandson of a Greek immigrant who ventured out to Panama when the canal was being built in search of opportunity.

He first went into teaching but then turned to farming. His business interests now span agriculture, shrimp ponds and a helicopter charter business.

He spoke to the BBC's Katy Watson about his working life.
