Chinese firm wins Bolivia highway construction deal, paper says

China’s International Waters and Electric Corp. (CWE) has won a bid to construct a highway in Bolivia, Shanghai Daily reported on Tuesday, citing an announcement by the state-owned Bolivian Highway Management the previous day. CWE has been awarded a contract to pave the Trinidad-San Ignacio de Moxos Highway in Bolivia’s Amazon region, according to the report. Once the final document is signed at the end of October, the Chinese firm will have three months to mobilize its equipment and set up camps. The highway is to be paved in two tracts, the first linking San Ignacio de Moxos and Fatima, a distance of some 41.6 km, and the second connecting Fatima with Puerto Ganadero, at 36.2 km long, the report said.
