The largest foreign aid project

Friday, February 02, 2018

THE Stinson Parade Bridge and the Waitu Waka Bridge project in Fiji are foreign aid projects funded by the Chinese government and was constructed by the China Railway Group's 14th consortium. It was the largest foreign aid project to be construction in Fiji.

At present, two bridges and connecting roads have been opened with the ribbon cutting ceremony marking its official launch this month. China Railway 14th Bureau Group Co., Ltd. has made many positive and beneficial efforts in actively integrating local cultures, following local rules, promoting local development, building business cards in China and establishing a national image, and also achieved solid and effective results.

It is reported that during the two years of the project construction, the company employed more than 600 local employees (120 at peak and 50-60 usually).

The bridge construction not only greatly alleviated the current situation of urban traffic congestion, but also created a large number of employment opportunities for the Fijians which has brought many tangible benefits too.
