Panama - Creating greater opportunities for all : Panamá - Crear mejores oportunidades para todos (西班牙语)

This Results Profile talks about reducing persistent poverty and inequality in Panama. Panama, with a population of approximately 3.5 million experienced the high degree of inequality, perpetuated by educational disparities, differential access to basic services, and wide discrepancies in productivity and incomes. The other challenges faced by Panama included, providing and maintaining infrastructure, educating the population, supporting innovation, and regulating efficiently. The Bank-funded Social Protection Project contributed to the design and implementation of the Conditional Cash Transfer program and supported its management information system. The government extended the use of this database to support other programs. Another important result from Bank assistance was the strengthening and modernization of public financial management. In terms of public procurement, significant progress was made with reforms to enhance the efficiency of supply management systems. The Bank also made a priority of achieving results by improving health, nutrition, and education attainment of the poor. The World Bank contributed to the increase in coverage of pre-school and secondary education through the Second Basic Education Project. The Bank was successful in working with Panama on measures to promote economic growth.
