Panama is a major international logistical hub and a banking center with over 90 banks, which has resulted in a growing number of private sector firms and international agencies establishing their regional headquarters in Panama. Panama will remain one of the region's fast-growing economies in Latin America, with GDP growth forecast to reach close to 5% in 2017. This is driven by the expanded canal, large infrastructure projects, mining and financing services. Panama has signed free trade agreements (FTA) witha number of countries including Canada, which came into force in April 2013.
