Engineers began flooding a newly enlarged section of the Panama Canal on Thursday as authorities prepare to test a series of new locks that will allow the waterway to accommodate much bigger ships, affecting trade around the world.

Said Panama Canal Authority head Jorge Quijano: “In less than a year, Panama will be enjoying the benefits of the expansion."
