Sinomach subsidiary eyes BRI business


There is broad space for cooperation in the field of global infrastructure development. China takes an open attitude toward all initiatives that are truly conducive to promoting connectivity, economic growth, people's living standards and social progress of all countries.

China welcomes more countries to participate in the high-quality growth of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), thereby injecting fresh momentum into global economic development and people's well-being.

Chinese builders such as Sinomach will continue to make great strides in high-quality Belt and Road construction.

China-aided pump irrigation project completed

China provided 4.37 billion Philippine pesos for the Chico River Pump Irrigation Project, which was inaugurated on June 25 and is expected to irrigate more than 8,000 hectares of farmland in the northern Philippine provinces of Cagayan and Kalinga.

Former Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte attended the inauguration ceremony via video link and thanked the Chinese government for its support and help. He also said that this project will continue to benefit the Filipino people and improve their lives for many years to come.

As one of the flagship projects of the "Build, Build, Build" plan in the Philippines, this project is a key infrastructure and livelihood project promoted by the two governments, and it is also the 17th Philippine-China inter-governmental cooperation project completed under President Duterte.

Sinomach subsidiary China CAMC Engineering Co Ltd (CAMCE) signed the project with the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) of the Philippines in March, 2018. It includes a new lifting pumping station, substation, supporting transmission lines, tunnels and channels on the right bank of the Chico River. The project will provide efficient and reliable irrigation water supply for local farmland, thus increasing crop yields and income of 4,350 farmers directly.

CAMCE has constructed the Agno River Integrated Irrigation Project, the Banaoang Pump Irrigation Project, the General Santos Fish Port Complex and some power transformer projects since entering the Philippine market in 1999. The livelihood projects have greatly promoted local economic development and brought tangible benefits to the country's people.

CAMCE signs $290m dam-building contract in Indonesia

CAMCE signed a $290 million construction contract with Indonesia to build the Southeast Asian country's Jenelata Dam on June 29.

The contracted dam is 1,525 meters long and 63.8 meters high, excluding its subsidiary facilities. The volume of the reservoir after the dam when completed is expected to reach 285 million cubic meters and can irrigate 24,400 hectares of farmland.

The Jenelata Dam was the first program linked to people's living standards under a recent government level bilateral cooperation agreement between China and Indonesia, and will be an important project as part of China's Belt and Road Initiative and Indonesia's Global Maritime Axis.

China and Guyana cooperate to build six modern regional hospitals

CAMEC has worked with China Sinopharm International Corporation (SINOPHARM) to undertake the construction of six modern regional hospitals in Guyana. A signing ceremony attended by Chinese and Guyanan representatives was held on July 1 for the project, which is valued at 170 million euros ($170.57 million).

With a large budget to be allocated for the health sector for 2022, Guyana has planned a major expansion program that includes the construction of six modern regional hospitals.

These regional hospitals are expected to catapult healthcare delivery beyond current levels provided by existing regional facilities, bringing great benefits to local residents.

Guyana means "Land of Many Waters". Bordering the Atlantic Ocean in the north, it is the only English-speaking country in South America.

This June 27 marked the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Guyana. Guyana took the lead in the English-speaking Caribbean to establish diplomatic ties with China, opening a new era of friendship between China and the Caribbean countries.

China and Guyana will take the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations as an opportunity to deepen mutual political trust, strengthen economic and trade cooperation and enhance exchanges and mutual understanding, so as to move together toward a brighter future of common prosperity.
