CORPUS CHRISTI - Heads of state from around the world gathered in Panama to witness the inauguration of a $5 billion expansion to the Panama Canal.
This expansion will almost certainly have a major economic impact on the Port of Corpus Christi and all the businesses that depend on the port.
Think of it as a HOV lane to the world, allowing bigger container ships to take a shortcut, carrying even more products we buy to the United States.
Panamanian dignitaries officially opened up a new and bigger lane of ship traffic on the Panama Canal.
