Panama is moving to make the teaching of Mandarin compulsory in all schools, in recognition of China's growing importance in the world economy.
The Panamanian National Assembly has given conditional approval to the bill in the first of three debates.

The bill's supporters say boosting the number of Chinese speakers will help increase Panama's competitiveness.

China is the biggest single user of the Panama Canal that connects the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

Never thought of moving my family to Panama "for the schools" -- but it's not a bad idea. They could learn both Spanish and Mandarin, then together with English they would have the three most important languages in the world (maybe excepting Arabic.)
