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?

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.
