THE ANSWER OF PANAMA TO NICARAGUA

 

Works for the expansion of the Panama Canal by GUPC (Grupo Unidos por el Canal ) have started again. The GUPC, a consortium, is led by the Spanish company Sacyr and in which we also find the Italian Salini-Impregilo.

The construction works had been stopped before due to the breach of negotiations on the additional costs of 1,6 billion dollars (a price equal to half of the commission value of 3,3 billion dollars), but after several negotiations and the Consortium threat of suspending works if the Panamanian authorities had failed to provide the additional funds necessary to the conclusion of the Canal, Panama Canal Authority and the consortium GUPC have reached a partial agreement.
