Living in Panama
Panama is a country situated in Central America, bordered by Costa Rica and Colombia; its north and south borders neighbour the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, with its capital and main city Panama City located by the Pacific Ocean, home to nearly half of the country’s 4 million inhabitants. Panama has a rich history, initially home to indigenous tribes before Spanish colonists seized power in the 1600s; it became independent from Spain in 1821 before uniting with Nueva Granada, Ecuador and Venezuela until 1831, calling themselves the Republic of Columbia. Panama separated from Colombia in 1903, in order to allow the US to construct the Panama Canal by 1914, creating a significant source of revenue for the country. Economically, the canal tolls are significant. but commerce, banking and tourism are developing as sectors. Finance has been particularly notorious, with a reputation as a tax haven; with the release of the Panama Papers in 2016 it has agreed to be more transparent. The geography of Panama has lent itself to building the Panama Canal, as the coastline has natural harbours and deep water capable of accommodating very large ships. There are also nearly 500 rivers across its landscape; these are mostly unnavigable, but the Chagres River is wide and is used to source a huge amount of hydroelectric power.
