Panama Economic Growth

The economy should continue to recover this year, albeit losing some steam following last year’s strong rebound. Growth should be fueled by an improving transportation sector and healthy copper exports. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists foresee the economy expanding 7.1% in 2022, which is up 0.7 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2023, the economy is seen growing 5.2%.

The economy of Panama is centered on a highly-developed services sector, which represents more than 75% of gross domestic product (GDP). The Panama Canal and use of the U.S. dollar have promoted the strengthening of a globally-oriented services economy. The Panama Canal is essential to global trade and accounts for almost 10% of the country’s GDP. Other important components of the service economy are the Colon Free Trade Zone (CFZ), which is the second largest free port in the world, and the Trans-Panama Pipeline, which allows for the transport of crude oil between the Pacific and Atlantic coasts. The license and registry of the Panama flag to merchant ships is another source of economic activity.
