Panama will officially open its canal on June 26, 2016, to far bigger cargo ships after nearly a decade of expansion work aimed at boosting transit revenues and global tradeA giant Chinese-chartered freighter is to nudge its way through the Panama Canal on Sunday to mark the completion of nearly a decade of expansion work forecast to boost global trade. The vessel, especially renamed COSCO Shipping Panama, will inaugurate the widened canal in an hours-long voyage from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean via a new shipping lane and gigantic locks that have been fitted to the century-old waterway.

Last year the European Union finally got rid of its three-decade old milk production quotas that it had imposed to eliminate the milk lakes and butter mountains that had plagued the bloc's farmers in the 1980s.
