Chinese company to get canal contract
The now official rumor is that a Chinese company will get the concession to build the canal across Nicaragua.
An AP article appeared in many newspapers including the Washington Post which offers more insight -- but not much. It sounds like the details will be presented to the legislature on Friday.
Legislative leader Rene Nunez said the company will use funds from investors around the world to build the $40 billion project.
The news is that it will not be built along the Rio San Juan which is a big loss for Costa Rica.
