How Will Panama Weather the Economic Storm?
This short article states that volume (and I guess revenues) for the canal will be just slightly down in 1999.
"the authority said this year's transit volume would be down 5 per cent to 294.1 million tons, 19.9 million tons less than in the previous fiscal year, which ended on September 20..."
Presumably, this is a lot smaller revenue decline than for Costa Rica or any other country in Central America. But the Canal isn't the only source of revenue for Panama, in any case.
What's the guy from Panama thiunk?
