The construction of an interoceanic canal in Nicaragua, a longstanding controversy, has once again become a source of concern in recent years, in both the global shipping industry and the world at large. After the new set of locks is opened in 2014, significantly larger ships can traverse the canal. resource management based on the long-term co-working spirit is vital’ (p. 397). For the second study, a CGE model is being, utilized to obtain a re-estimation of the impact under an on-going study of, The canal operation generates revenues which are then paid as salaries to, Panamanian workers, payments to the National Government, and purchases made. The Panama Canal expansion project (Spanish: ampliación del Canal de Panamá), also called the Third Set of Locks Project, doubled the capacity of the Panama Canal by adding a new lane of traffic allowing for a larger number of ships, and increasing the width and depth of the lanes and locks allowing larger ships to pass. A scoring function can then be developed as: is the interactivity potential between places.
