Planned in the Managua ceremony is the presence of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega and Chinese businessman, Wang Jing, owner of the HKND Group.

Work is to commence with the construction of access roads to the places of excavation and necessary installations to undertake the waterway project, the official statement said.

The canal is 278 kilometres long from the Pacific coast to the Caribbean, crossing the 105 kilometre wide Gran Lago de Nicaragua (Great Lake of Nicaragua).

In addition to the digging of the canal, the Chinese consortium also plans to build roads, two ports, an artificial lake, an airport, a tourist resort and a free trade zone, in addition to steel mills and a cement plant, says the official government newspaper, El19digital.com

“We are living in a time of wonder, times of blessing, prosperity and victory. We are full of faith and faith will produce miracles, opening doors, moving mountains,” said Rosario Murillo, Coordinadora del Consejo de Comunicación y Ciudadanía, who is also Nicaragua’s first lady and wife of president Daniel Ortega.
