Chinese-made motorway price tag raises eyebrows in Douala
The Kribi-Lalobé motorway, Cameroon's first-ever toll road, has been up and running smoothly for a month. It cost $453m to build.
The Chinese state construction giant and its subsidiary CRBC, in association with the Wison group, hope to snag the contract to build Morocco's first floating regasification unit (FSRU). The unit will allow the kingdom to import gas by ship, after Algeria shut down the GME pipeline.
Chinese construction giant Sinohydro, which won the contract for the extension of Rabat-Salé Airport in 2019 with a bid well below that of the leading Moroccan construction companies, is a long way behind with work on the contract and could even abandon it.
