Embassies Of Panama ~ Embassies ~ Consulates & Government Offices
It would be very hard for anyone today to imagine what the Panama Canal Zone was like in its heyday, which would have been in the 1940s and 50s. It was after the Suez Crisis of 1956 when Egypt took control of its Canal that the whole question of sovereignty over the Panama Canal and the Canal Zone began to change: you could say the whole process of decolonization in the developing world which was strongly backed by the U.S. after WWII, put an end to America’s oldest colony. 
Panama has always looked to attract foreign capital: it imports five times what it exports. Mostly tourism, banana exports, shrimp exports, Canal fees, and foreign capital have covered the trade gap: there is almost $40 billion in Panama’s banks, which is quite high for a country with a population of 3 million, 300,000 of which have money to put in a bank.
In Panama the business environment is excellent. Business people are king; no one likes a businessman more than Panamanians. I am always surprised by the number of business people with different ethnic backgrounds that are trading and negotiating and just trying to make a buck in Panama: in this environment there is little consensus so that public interests as represented by government policy is weak in comparison to private business interests. Each ethnic community in Panama has its own nitch: Muslims; used cars; Indians, small-loans and electronics; Jewish, clothes and banking; Greeks, shipping and fishing; Italians, imports of fine goods and supermarkets; Spanish, furniture; Chinese, restaurants, construction and banking.  In this business environment just make sure that you don’t tread across someone else’s private interest. You have to make a local contact in Panama in order to get what you need done, though some kinds of businesses – internet-based businesses - fall outside this fact – but still a local contact will help.  Panama has great construction and great communications, a legacy of the Canal. There are many Internet providers and banks that offer everything from web hosting to e-commerce accounts.

Panama is located in Central America, bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, between Colombia and Costa Rica. Its location on the Isthmus of Panama is strategic. In the year 2000, Panama took control of the Panama Canal that links the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean.

Comarcas - Comarcas indígenas de Panamá
Comarcas: There are three major Indian groups in Panama: the Kunas on the San Blas Islands off the Caribbean coast, the Emberá in the province of Darien, and the Guaymies in Chiriquí, Bocas del Toro, and Veraguas provinces. There are also Teribe and Bokota Indians in Boca del Toro and Waunaans in Darien. To a large degree the indigenous peoples of Panama have maintained their traditional lifestyle; as a result, in addition to ten provinces, Panama also has three 'comarcas'; states belonging to indigenous peoples. There are actually two other comarcas that do not have provincial status (Kuna de Madungandí and Kuna de Waragandí) which are therefore not shown on the map.  Comarca (meaning shire or county), is a traditional region or local administrative division found in parts of Spain, Portugal, Panama, Nicaragua, and Brazil.
