Panama’s strategic location has been the backbone of its service-oriented economy from as far back as the 17th century when the isthmus was famous for the Portobolo fairs held by the Spanish whose galleons arriving from Europe brought merchandise for the new territories prior to loading the gold and silver destined for the court of King Ferdinand. The construction of the Panama Canal and the unique monetary system based on the US dollar since 1904, have led the country to become an important international trading, banking and maritime center.
