Will Nicaragua's mega-canal ever be built

Wang Jing, a Chinese billionaire, plans to build the canal across Nicaragua to challenge Panama for the world’s cargo traffic. The canal would be three times as long as Panama’s and able to accommodate larger ships.

Opponents of the project worry what the regional impact will be if the proposed Grand Inter-Oceanic Canal is ever built.
