Tuesday, January 19, 2016

The opening of larger Panama Canal locks, already postponed several times by construction delays,  has been pushed back again and now is expected early in the second half of this year, a canal official said.

“We expect it to be open for commercial business sometime in the second half of the year,” said Francisco J. Miguez, executive vice president for finance and administration at the Panama Canal Authority, in a speech at a conference in Atlanta.
