Money in Panama
Panama - MoneyEconomic activity likely remained feeble in the second quarter, following the weakest growth print in over seven years in the first quarter. In Q2 the monthly indicator for average economic activity (IMAE, Índice Mensual de Actividad Económica) was even lower than the bleak results logged in the first quarter, largely due to a month-long union strike in the construction sector in May, which ground the industry to a halt. Data regarding the all-important maritime transport sector has also been mixed. In January to July, freight volume in the Panama Canal increased at a much slower pace than the double-digit growth recorded in 2017, while tonnage passing through the country’s ports decreased.
