Representatives of Chinese company Shandong Hi-Speed Group Co. have expressed “enormous interest” in participating in the development of the Special Economic Area of the Maritime Economy in São Vicente, said the Cape Verdean Minister of Maritime Economy, José Gonçalves, at the end of a visit to the island by a Chinese business delegation.
Shandong Hi-Speed Group Co. is present in 76 countries where it operates in a wide range of areas, from airport and port construction to operation and management of roads, bridges and railway lines.
Gonçalves, quoted by the Inforpress news agency, said that despite the “whistle stop” nature of the visit, as the delegation of business people visited the island of Sao Vicente for just a few hours, it was “a first-hand look” at the opportunities that the Cape Verdean island offers within the framework of the Special Economic Area of the Maritime Economy.
The minister also said that during the meeting held in the city of Mindelo a visit was scheduled by a Cape Verdean delegation to China in the first quarter of the year. (macauhub)
