Panama is located on the narrow strip of land that connects North and South America. There is an estimated population of 3.3 million people. Panama's key geographic position has been conducive to its specialization as a service country. The Panama Canal and the Colon Free Zone are at the forefront of this development. The official language is Spanish and its currency is the US Dollar legal tender, which circulates freely in Panama. Panamanian law is based on the Spanish Civil Code, although the company law has been taken from the corporation law of Delaware in the USA.
