  • India-Panama: An Old Relationship

    It’s worth noting that the India-Panama relationship has deep historical roots, being the oldest in the Central American region. These ties trace back to the mid-19th century when groups of Indians immigrated to work on the construction of Panama Railways and later the Panama Canal.

    Developments in recent years have only served to strengthen this long-standing alliance, fortified by the exchange of such cordial messages on significant national occasions.

    Gratitude from India’s Leadership
