Chinese Construction Companies Target Central America
Large construction companies in the Asian country are interested in the mega projects that are to be developed in the region, especially in Panama and Costa Rica.

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

At the last Capac Expo Hábitat fair in Panama, more than 20 companies from China showcased their progress and took the opportunity to establish contacts with local public and private investors.

The large companies, some of which already have contracts in the canal country, carry out works such as bridges, railroads, airports, hydroelectric power plants, agroproductive developments, and provide technology services, among other things.

See "Bridge over the Canal: Chinese contract confirmed"

Fang Qiuche, president of the Association of International Contractors of China (Chinca), explained to Martesfinanciero.com that " ... 'Panama is an important and strategic country and serves as a bridge for the entire continent. We have high expectations that Chinese construction, infrastructure and market research companies can come to the country to develop new businesses and foster joint cooperation.'"

In relation to the interest that Asian companies have in future works, Clark Xia, senior general manager of Engineering of China Railway Group Limited (CREC), said that " ... they are very interested in the railway construction project that will link David, in Chiriquí, with Panama, and they hope to participate [in it] once the viability of the work has been defined after the studies that are being carried out."We want to participate in this project that will bring many economic development opportunities for Panama and the region, and we want to participate with all the capacity and technological knowledge to improve the quality of life for Panamanians."

Xia added that they are also interested in projects such as water sanitation, road construction and future works on the Metro.

In addition to the works in Panama, Asian companies are in charge of other projects in Costa Rica. One example is the construction firm China Harbor Engineering Company, which is responsible for extending 107 kilometers of the road between the crossing to Rio Frio and downtown Limón.

Chinese to Build Bridge Over the Canal

July 2018

After two proposals were disqualified and another participant withdrew, the consortium formed by two Chinese state construction companies won the tender to design and build the fourth bridge over the Panama Canal.

After Dragados Sucursal Panama, the company that had obtained the best qualification decided to withdraw from the contest, the road was paved for the consortium made up of the companies China State Construction Engineering Corporation LTD and China Railway Group Limited, to win the contest with a economic proposal of $1.42 billion and a score of 69,9%.
The proposals to Build the Fourth Bridge Over the Panama Canal

October 2017

Four consortiums made up of companies from China, Spain, Italy and South Korea have presented their proposals to design and build a fourth bridge over the Panama Canal.

The timeframe for building the work has been estimated at 42 months, and the estimated investment is over $1 billion. This project aims to connect the areas of Arraiján and La Chorrera, to the west, with Panama City, near the Canal Pacific sector.
Chinese Construction Company Accused of Fraud

March 2015

China Harbour Engineering Company, one of the bidders in the tender for Line 2 of the Panama Metro and a contractor for road works in Costa Rica, is ineligible to participate in projects financed by the World Bank.

Given the criticisms over its main involvement (60%) in one of the consortia which submitted bids for the construction of the Panama Metro Line 2, a spokesperson for China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) Latin America argued that ".. . The temporary disqualification applied by the World Bank to the holding company China Communications and Construction Company (CCCC) does not affect its ability to receive funds from the lender "... "Under the sanction, CCCC is ineligible to participate in any road and bridge project funded by the World Bank group until January 12, 2017."

International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), Americas, Globalisation & Human Rights, 11 October 2018 Read original news here

In a new report released today, FIDH and the Colectivo sobre Financiamiento e Inversiones Chinas, Derechos Humanos y Ambiente (CICDHA), a coalition of 20 human rights organisations, unveil a pattern of human and environmental rights violations committed by Chinese companies in Latin America.
The report features case-studies from 18 projects, supported by 15 Chinese consortia, including private and State-owned enterprises and by at least six Chinese banks in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru.

The report concludes that the violations of human and environmental rights are not isolated incidents. It reveals a recurring pattern of behaviour marked by a disrespect for fundamental rights and internationally recognised economic, social, and cultural rights as well as non-compliance with international standards and a lack of accountability for human rights violations. The report also finds that the companies have continuously and knowingly engaged in behaviours violating human rights (such as the right to land, territory, and adequate housing; the right to live in a healthy environment; the right to liberty and security; and the rights to consultation and participation). The Chinese authorities have failed to monitor and examine the human rights due diligence of projects implemented by Chinese companies in the countries examined. Lastly, the report also documents the Chinese government’s failure to adopt and implement effective measures for fulfilling China’s extraterritorial obligations under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).

Over the past decade, Chinese presence in global extractive and infrastructure industries has increased sharply in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region, where it is expected to further grow in the years to come. In this regard, China, a State party to the ICESCR, has obligations to respect, protect, and fulfill human rights, both in and outside its territory, and an obliga

You have to work though. Here they can get free everything, though I think it's coming to a halt thanks to President Trump.

Exactly.

When there’s a group of low-iq socialists who believe that anyone who refuses to work should be entitled to free welfare benefits, for life, why work at all?

Just walk to that country and ‘boom’, you’re a citizen.

Have a history of rape? No problem, don’t even have to tell us your real name or age or even your country of origin. Just hold out your hand and we’ll put money in it.

Just one catch: vote democrat

Does that really happen in America.
In this country, the welfare comes to your house, they check for ashtrays, beer in the fridge and cleanliness of your living conditions. If you go money for booze and smokes, well, you get a consular to manage your money. Us tax payers don't like it when we work and give 37% our income to welfare frauds. And you know what, it works.

Yeah. Lots of jobs. Did you read what you posted? Maybe you should.

But I think drug gang violence is pretty high on the list of reasons for migration. Along with poverty, of course.

Not quite as stringent in the US. But contrary to what some believe, those who are in the country illegally are not eligible for federal government assistance but some states do allow for basic needs (food through SNAP, some healthcare).

Why is that America's problem anyways? Are Democrats saying Trump created so many jobs we need immigrants to fill them?

Actually that's not true. They can get SSI in some situations.

Also there are loopholes. Come here, have a child, boom now that child is a citizen and qualifies for assistance.

This isn't about availability of work. This is about gangs murdering and raping people. The vast majority of these people are trying to escape widespread violence in their countries. But that doesn't play into the monotone rhetoric you're being fed.

Of course there are. But not remotely close to the level found in those countries. I think the key word is 'widespread'.

I take it you are Japanese. I have always held reverence for your culture and people. What they do in Japan is what should be done everywhere. If you expect the government to pay your way, expect to abide by the rules. We don't do that in the US. The system is horribly abused, and there are so many loopholes it will make your head spin. And if you can't get on welfare, try disability...they are both horribly abused.

I believe the fine citizens of Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami...would call the violence in their communities “widespread”...though officials do their best to tamper those observations.

I guess they have the right to seek "asylum" anywhere they want. I hope the government pays their way like we do here.

They can also get free healthcare. Just walkinto the emergency room with a cough and you and i will pay for our most qualified physicians to write a prescription.
