Construction projects of former regime in Panama halted
Work has stopped in Panama on multiple projects by a consortium much favored by the administration of former president Ricardo Martinelli and now mired in corruption investigations.
A lack of liquidity of HPC Contratas P&V has caused a chain of defaults in the delivery of state projects. The consortium was awarded contracts for the construction of agricultural markets as part of the much touted Martinelli national cold chain project. It also received contracts to build health centers in Chepo and Colon.
