Newsline: Chinese Embassy in Manila says Beijing negotiating infrastructure projects with the Philippines

The Chinese Embassy in Manila said on Sunday that it has been negotiating infrastructure project “technical issues” with the Philippines, stressing that it has made “positive progress to move the projects forward.” (https://www.msn.com/en-ph/news/national/china-negotiating-infrastructure-project-technical-issues-with-the-philippines-e2-80-94embassy/ar-AAZFlBM) Transportation Undersecretary for Railways Cesar Chavez earlier said the Chinese government did not act on the Duterte administration’s request for loan financing for three major railway projects, therefore these were considered withdrawn and have to be renegotiated by the current government. The three railway projects were the Subic-Clark Railway Project, the Philippine National Railways (PNR) South Long-Haul Project, and the Davao-Digos segment of the Mindanao Railway Project (MRP).
