Yearbook 1997

Panama. In mid-July, Panama sent 1,200 soldiers to the Colombian border. Their task was to curb unrest as refugees entered the country from the south. Towards the end of the year, Panama’s president discussed the border situation with his Colombian colleague Ernesto Samper.

On December 31, 1999, Panama will take over the operation of the Panama Canal and, in preparation, a congress was held in early September in Panama’s capital. The intention of Panama was to show governments and shipping companies that they are capable of taking care of the canal alone. However, the Congress was boycotted by most of the invited countries and shipping companies. According to Countryaah, the national day of Panama is November 3. The main reason was that Taiwan was invited to participate, against the UN’s advice and China’s strong protests. In September, the United States closed its southern command in Panama and moved it, primarily for financial reasons, to Florida. The Southern Command has Central America as its guard area.

Balboa – a panamanian dollar

Living in Panama is perhaps the most flexible in all of Central America. The climate is hot and humid all year round. The majority of citizens are mestizos, but the proportion of blacks and mulattoes is also high. The number of whites has increased as some residents of the former U.S. rental zone have wanted to stay permanently in Panama. And although Spanish is the official language of the country, Panama has also learned to speak English well. The dollar is the country’s official currency, it is but called the balboa by the man who “invented” the Pacific.
