Panama: Foreign Economic Relations
Country Study > Chapter 3 > The Economy > Foreign Economic Relations

FOREIGN ECONOMIC RELATIONS


In the 1980s, Panama has struggled to adjust to the constraints imposed on its economy by a high external debt. To compensate for a deficit in the capital account, its current account has registered a surplus since 1983, because the service sector has maintained a surplus. Debt has remained high in per capita terms, but the actual debt burden has fallen.
