INFRASTUCTURE

Panama’s infrastructure is known to be one of the best in Latin America and is well developed in and around urban areas.

There is a network of roads and railroads throughout the country, and several international airports.

In addition, water transportation is what the country is famous for, with the Panama Canal serving as the main pipeline between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.This is undergoing a large expansion project that will help to increase the capacity.

In 2013, the President of Panama launched a five year $13.6 billion investment plan to improve trade, logistics, tourism, and exports. The plan hopes to draw in foreign investments and create new jobs, focusing on how infrastructure improvements will help to further boost the economy.
