After drought forced a reduction in traffic through the Panama Canal, rising reservoir levels have led the Panama Canal Authority to plan increases in daily transits (Voice of America, Maritime Executive). The question will be suspended on 14 August 2024 and the outcome determined using data as reported by the IMF's PortWatch (PortWatch, see "Transit Calls" chart, which includes export options). Between and including 15 July 2023 and 14 August 2023, the Panama Canal had 1,084 transit calls.
