Consortium Threatens to Halt Panama Canal Expansion
The consortium carrying out a historic expansion of the Panama Canal says it may have to suspend work due to the financial problems, according to foxnews.com.
Led by Spain’s Sacyr Vallehermoso, the consortium, which also includes Impregilo of Italy, Jan De Nul Group and Panama’s Constructora Urbana, is claiming $1.6 billion (1.16 billion euros).
