Thursday, March 24, 2016


Panama will inaugurate its newly-expanded canal on Jun 26, nearly two years behind schedule, the head of the state canal authority said on Wednesday.

"With the inauguration of this project, we will claim once again our historic vocation as a route of transit and a meeting point of civilisations," the Canal Authority's CEO Jorge Quijano said at a ceremony alongside Panama's President Juan Carlos Varela.
