When the US relinquished its military presence in the Panama Canal Zone on December 31, 1999, few predicted the Central American nation of 3.7 million would embark upon a period of sustained economic growth. Yet since 2006, the country has achieved a cumulative growth rate of 9%, a rate that far exceeds not only that of its regional neighbors across Latin America.
