Chinese company to build Nicaraguan canal
A concession to build a canal across Nicaragua linking the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea will be awarded to a Chinese company, the National Assembly president said Wednesday.
Legislative leader Rene Nunez said the company will use funds from investors around the world to build the $40 billion project.
Nunez talked to local media after two bills for streamlining the process of building the canal and assessing its environmental impact were presented to lawmakers.
