– President Luis Guillermo Solís at the end of his tour in Beijing, China, in a telephone conversation with La Nacion said that his in “his interpretation” the government of China is not behind entrepreneur Wang Jing, licensee of the Gran Canal de Nicaragua project.

“The subject was raised within the agenda, but I have seen the repeated opinions that the Chinese government has nothing to do (with the Nicaragua project) and I believe it,” said Solís.

In addition to the statement by the President, high government officials have expressed to La Nacion the same opinion.

The Nicaragua project is being headed by Wang Jing, president of the Hong Kong company HKND Group and Xinwei telecommunications. The project cost, to build a canal from the Pacific ocean to the Caribbean sea through Nicaragua, is expected to be US$50 billion dollars.

Amidst protests and controversy in Nicaragua and concerns in Zapote (government house in Costa Rica), work on the project began on December 22.

At the end of the tour of China that lasted almost a week, Solis said that he is satisfied having changed the terms of reference (sic) in the relationship with China.
