Endorsement of Contract to Finish Convention Center

China Construction America and Construcciones Civiles Generales will have two years to complete construction of the Convention Center in Amador, which has been on hold for 13 months.

The two representatives (one Asian and one Panamanian, in that order) will resume construction of the Convention Center of Amador, which is 35% complete and has been on hold since December 2014.

Laestrella.com.pa reports that, "... the Office of the Comptroller General of Colombia has endorsed the transfer of the contract which allows for the continuation of the construction of the amphitheater. Gustavo Him, director of the Tourism Authority of Panama (ATP) confirmed that the Asian company will contribute capital to complete the mega-project and that it will keep its original cost of $193 million. "

"... Plans indicate that the work must be completed in twenty four months from the resumption of the work, which is expected to occur almost immediately. The mega project has been on hold since December 2014, when the consortium HPC-Hire-P & V abandoned it due to lack of liquidity to finish it."
