President Juan Carlos Varela has announced that Line 3 of the Panama City Metro will feature Japanese technology and be financed by Japan, a project valued at more than $2 billion dollars.
Line 3 will be 27 kilometers with 6 trains and 14 stations going from Line 1 in Albrook to Arraiján and La Chorrera, connecting people in West Panama to the city center.
