China-Panama relations are the bilateral relationships between the People's Republic of China and Republic of Panama. The relations between Panama and the Qing dynasty began in 1909 and modern relations began on 2 January 1922 between Panama and the Beiyang government of China. Following the Chinese Civil War in 1949, relations were maintained in Taiwan and the other islands. After breaking off relations with the ROC in June 2017, Panama established diplomatic relations with the mainland government of the People's Republic of China.[1] On 26 July 2017, PRC's Foreign Ministry spokesman said that the trade office of China in Panama has been upgraded to China's Embassy in Panama on 13 July and has started its business.[2]
