Panama’s judiciary near bottom of leading World Economic Forum indicator
The independence of Panama’s judiciary is rated 125 out of 133 countries in The Global Competitiveness Index released by The World Economic Forum.
The country is also losing ground in terms of competitiveness, because of corruption and bureaucracy.
Panama, which last year took second place in continental Latin America and the first in Central America, has been overtaken this year by Costa Rica and Brazil and has dropped to 59th position overall.
