Canal Authority demands GUPC to resume works

The Panama Canal Authority has demanded that Grupo Unidos por el Canl
(GUPC), the consortium in charge of the third set of locks, resume work on
the project as required by the contract.

After two weeks of negotiations, which saw production levels drop to 5%,
almost all activity has ceased.

The Canal Administrator, Jorge Quijao, stated that the Panama Canal
Authority continues to try to find a solution, but stressed that the
contractor must resume normal activity, which is especially crucial during
the Panama dry season.
