Panama Canal, PANAMA: TO GO WITH AFP STORY A tanker crosses through Panama Canal's Miraflores locks April 21st, 2006, 25 km north of Panama City. President Martin Torrijos is to announce 24th April 2006 the details of an extension plan of the Canal which involves the construction of a third lock that will allow post-Panamax vessels - of enormous size - to transit through it. According to the Canal's Authority, the 8,000 million dollar enterprise - subject to a referendum - is vital for the survival of the canal, where nowadays these huge vessels cannot cross. Each year some 13.000 to 14.000 ships representing 5 percent of the world's maritime trade go through the Canal, strategically located between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
