Less investment, depletion of international reserves and contraction of public spending, in the opinion of Funides, are some of the effects that might be felt if the US Senate approves the bill.
The Nicaraguan Foundation for Economic and Social Development (Funides) has analyzed the potential impact of a possible US approval of the bill known as the "Nica Act", which aims to place conditions on the granting of loans by international institutions to the Ortega administration.
The US Congress passed a law which puts conditions on Daniel Ortega's government for obtaining loans from international institutions.
The purpose of the law known as the Nica Act, is for loans negotiated between Nicaragua and international financial organizations to be rejected by the United States, unless the Ortega government takes"... measures for the restoration of democracy and the holding of free, fair and transparent elections."
The launch of a tender for its construction is still scheduled for early 2017 and the line will run parallel to the fourth bridge over the Panama Canal.
From a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry of Panama:
The presidents of Panama, Juan Carlos Varela, and Japan, Shinzo Abe, will preside this April 18th in Tokyo, over the signing of the financing and project management of the construction of Line 3 of the Metro de Panama going towards the province of Panama Oeste, a work which is expected to be started at the beginning of 2017 and to be completed in 2022.
An announcement from Moody's confirms the limited room for maneuver left to the country when obtaining external financing, compromising access to credit for the private sector.
Costa Rica has received a new warning over a possible lack of access to funds in the international market with which to alleviate its growing fiscal deficit. After China's decision not to buy $1 billion in bonds , the rating agency Moody's anticipates a rise in interest rates in the country and a deterioration of credit and growth.
The interest rate rise in the US and the perceived risk of the Salvadoran economy have taken their toll on foreign debt bonds, whose yields have risen by about 2% in recent weeks.
This increase in yield of debt securities traded on the international market will be reflected in the forthcoming issues made by the government, which, according to economic analyst Mauricio Choussy, "... 'will no longer be sold for seven percent or six point five, which was the levels achieved previously, but rather will go for a higher interest rate, at eight percent. '"
Approved resources from an international loan will be allocated to infrastructure improvements at the customs offices of Peñas Blancas, San Pancho and Guasaule.
One of the purposes of the improvements to be undertaken at the customs offices is to reduce the time it takes to process control of goods in transit, something that Nicaraguan businessmen and the region have complained about repeatedly.
