PANAMA CITY Aug 24 (Reuters) - Panama's economy cooled in June, growing 4.07 percent compared to 5.17 percent in May, according to government data published on Wednesday.

The Central American country's economic expansion was driven by growth in energy generation, transport and construction, according to the government report.

Shipping in 20-foot equivalent units (TEU) decreased in the month, the report said. (Reporting by Elida Moreno; Editing by Sandra Maler)
