My favorite part of the program was the cultural aspect, and seeing how people lived in other parts of the world
Being able to receive first-hand experience of the Panama Canal with some extraordinary people was definitely my favorite part of the experience. I've always been interested in world trade and the program really gave me a chance to fully indulge myself in the process of how the U.S. governement supported or furnish incentives for business to do business.
My favorite part of this program was learning about logistics and operations surrounding the Panama Canal.
