The Nicaraguan construction industry is expected to grow 14 percent this year, according to the president of the industry chamber, Benjamín Lanzas.
During 2011, the industry created around 10,000 jobs, a reflection of the sector's recovery, said Lanzas.
Many joint public and private construction projects are currently underway in sectors such as energy, tourism, housing and highways.
