Is the Chinese company HKND’s proposal to build a canal through Nicaragua really based on commerical realities, or is it actually a front for a bold geopolitical move on the part of Beijing? It would not be the first time the country had been acccused of using its ports and marine construction capacity to further its national interests. This disturbing report by one of Nicaragua’s most senior journalists, who has put the most comprehensive list of questions of HKND executives and had little but silence in response, paints a very different picture to that propagated by Nicaraguan officials. Essential for anyone interested in on-the-ground reporting on this subject.
