The Republic of Panama forms a link between Central and South America, constituting an isthmus 60 miles wide at its narrowest point. The country has over three million residents, with one-third living in the capital, Panama City.
World-famous for the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal, Panama City is the most cosmopolitan capital in Central America. It has seen significant growth and is known for international shipping and banking, transportation, insurance, warehousing, and sales. The combination of colonial ruins, modern high-rise office buildings, luxury homes, and squatters’ slums reflects the blend of cultures, eras, and economic levels that are found in the city.
Panama City has numerous tourist attractions, including Panamá la Vieja (the ruins of the original city), Casco Viejo (the Old Quarter), museums, and national parks. The country has a tropical maritime climate, with an average daily high temperature of 87°F.
Project work at the Panama City Project Center focuses on areas of Environmental and Civil Engineering. Sponsors include various government and private organizations in Panama City.
