Panama Canal revenues totaled 2,513.2 million dollars in 2018, 8.5% more than the 2,316.3 million of the previous year, according to figures from the Institute National Statistics and Census (Inec) released on Wednesday.

The revenue increase of 2018 is less than the 17.6% of the previous year, a performance deemed extraordinary by the Panama Canal Authority (ACP), which was the product of the full operation of the extension of the road, which entered service to mid 2016

Regarding the results of 2018, the preliminary figures of the statistical entity specify that last December was the month with the highest revenues for the interoceanic route, with 220.8 million dollars, 2.8% more than in the same period of 2017.
