Info about Panama (History)

Panama is a transcontinental country in Central and South America, bordering Costa Rica to the west, Colombia to the southeast, the Caribbean Sea to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the south. The largest city in the capital is Panama City, which is home to almost half of the country's 4 million population.

Prior to the arrival of Spanish settlers in the 16th century, Panama was inhabited by indigenous peoples. It separated from Spain in 1821 and joined the Republic of Gran Colombia, a coalition of Nueva Granada, Ecuador and Venezuela. After the dissolution of Greater Colombia in 1831, Panama and Nueva Granada eventually became the Republic of Colombia. With US support, Panama left Colombia in 1903, allowing the US Army Corps of Engineers to complete the construction of the Panama Canal between 1904 and 1914. The 1977 Torrijos-Carter Treaty moved the canal from the United States to Panama on December 31, 1999. The surrounding area was first returned in 1979.

Revenues from canal tolls continue to make up a significant portion of Panama's GDP, while commerce, banking and tourism are major and growing sectors. It is considered a high-income economy. In 2019, Panama was ranked 57th in the world in the Human Development Index. In 2018, Panama was ranked as the 7th most competitive economy in Latin America, according to the World Competitiveness Index of the World Economic Forum. The jungle of Panama occupies about 40% of its land area and is rich in tropical plants and animals. Some of them are not found anywhere on earth. Panama is a founding member of the United Nations and other international organizations such as OAS, LAIA, G77, WHO and NAM.
