The activity, organized by the Nicaraguan American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), will include the participation of HKND Group spokesman Ronald MacLean-Abaroa and Alberto Vega, a representative from Environmental Resources Management (ERN), the firm responsible for the environmental impact studies.

"We are bringing first-hand to our membership and the Nicaraguan people clarification on the current state of the canal, what progress has been made in these feasibility studies and how far we think it will go," said the president of AmCham, Diego Vega.

"Everything has been moving very quickly and it is important to take a pause, to take a moment to have first hand discussion with the people who are managing the project, so that they can clearly convey to us to where we stand," he added.

"We are going to continue to monitor this process and that is something that from day one we have been asked to do, investors who are not clear on the rules will invest in Nicaragua," said the official.
