    The already completed works allow that the expanded Canal will be proud, tremendous pride. The cinema projections vary and show different facets, stories and moments. But should take into account, and say it clearly, that engineering and the current method of enlargement are the work of a consortium called "Groups United for the Canal", led by Sacyr Hispaniola, and in addition, owned by the Italian Impregilo, Belgian "Jan de Nul" and Constructora Urbana S.A. Of Panama. Seeing these projections on construction is obvious, literally, to the Spanish and Belgian companies. Very of course is that the doors come from Italy, and involved the Panamanian company... and others? It is clearly unfair and uncertain! I would ask that they correct this documentation in order not to mistake visitors. Unless it is intentional. This would contribute to maintaining and strengthening the image of objectivity and seriousness of the country. This is not serious, gentlemen! As he is explained that a first attempt was from the French and the first Canal was carried out by the United States of America. Do you should separate this information from the existence of the existing litigation, that work of a magnitude of this type will have not had them? Do not risk losing its credibility by hiding the reality. Otherwise it is nice although the passage of vessels is slower than enMiraflores, and all operations, and the restaurant food is terrible.
