A Word from Our National

Rwanda NationalPanama is a small country about the size of South Carolina that borders the Caribbean Sea, between Columbia and Costa Rica. Panama's economy rests primarily on a well-developed services sector that accounts for 80 percent of its national income. Services include operating the Panama Canal, banking, the Colon Free Zone, insurance, container ports, flagship registry, and tourism. Panama is one of the world’s most strategic nations. Its 48-mile canal connecting Atlantic and Pacific oceans remains one of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever attempted. Since 1914, a ship sailing from New York to San Francisco can cut through Panama instead of rounding Cape Horn, reducing a 14,000-mile voyage to only 6,000 miles. The United States spent hundreds of millions of dollars to build, maintain and protect the Canal before relinquishing ownership and control to the Panamanian people at the end of 1999. And in a 2006 national referendum, the people of Panama overwhelmingly approved a 5.25 billion expansion project.
