The deal, which is a public-private partnership (PPP), will see the state-owned contractor build the 538km highway.

The contract was awarded for 15 years – five years of construction and then ten years of operation by CCA.

The project marks CSCEC’s first scheme in the South American country, and Argentina’s first such partnership involving a Chinese company.

The highway project passes through the provinces of Buenos Aires and La Pampa, two important industrial and agricultural economic zones in the Latin America country.
