CHINESE INFRASTRUCTURE WORKS. The government signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a China Harbour Engineering Co. Ltd. (CHEC) to design and build the North Abaco Port and by-pass road; a bridge between Little and Great Abaco; a port and by-pass highway in Exuma; and the Eleuthera Glass Window Bridge and approaching embankments, reports The Nassau Guardian (March 11, 2011). Minister of public works & transport Neko Grant said CHEC will submit project proposals by April 26. The government will then submit a loan application for consideration by the China Export Import Bank by June 30. Projects are expected to start by the end of this year and be complete by Dec. 2012. Grant said the Chinese contractors will partner with local companies throughout all phases.
