China plans to invest in road infrastructure in Romania but with state warrantees: The investment is not for free, Chinese Ambassador said

Vineri, 24 iunie 2011

Chinese Ambassador to Bucharest, H.E. Liu Zengwen said that Chinese businessmen are interested to invest in the road infrastructure in Romania, including in highways but big investments need to be assured with state warrantees, news agency Mediafax reports.

The Ambassador said that Chinese and Romanian authorities had talks about a collaboration in developing road infrastructure and representatives of some Chinese companies made some research trips to Romania, talked about technical issues. The Chinese official said that there are some problems that still need to be addressed, seeking solutions that would be the best for both parties.

He said that Chinese investors need to know the legal framework very well before investing for that advantages to be twofold. The investment is not for free, the Ambassador said. He said that for very big investments the state needs to ensure the investment through state warrantees or commercial warrantees and at the moment the state cannot offer them, being conditioned by the IMF and EU budgetary deficit target.

This is a rather strange trace. Would this not be more rational?

They are preparing that route for EU finance starting 2014.

Because they want to catch Craiova under this route, which is the economic center of SW Romania. On another version, there would be another direct link betwen Drobeta and Calafat, but the Priority so far was to have Craiova on it:



As for other links in the region, the magenta lines are express ways:

1. is almost completed.

2. is currently U/C on different sections.

3. is not currently U/C but some sections were transformed in early 2000s in express.

4. is the express planned for a connection with A1, although there were also talks of a motorway

5. is only in plans for now because it crosses the mountains and it's very expensive.

Yes, but the huge intersection would also be in the middle of nowhere, which is not efficient. Motorways need to link communities.

There's no deadline in the announcement but it should be no more than 1 year after contracting. So by end 2012 it should be ready, with tenders to be launched in 2013.

A1 is under EU financing, until end 2014, so it doesn't impact this tender.

A3 is under negotiations with Bechtel and it has also nothing to do with this tender. Brasov-Comarnic section will be tendered this year, and offered probably to the Chinese (as well as Pitesti-Sibiu), while Bucharest-Ploiesti has great chances to be completed by end of year (as well as Timisoara-Arad).

I am waiting for the end of this year to see if anything will be contracted with the Chinese too.

After the Chinese government-owned company Covec screwed up so badly with the A2 in Poland, it will be interesting to see how things play out in Romania.

I understand Covec failed as a result of an all-out boycott coming from Polish subcontractors who didn't like the low-prices introduced by Covec, which were a threat for the Polish established companies on the construction market. I don't think a similar thing will happen here.

I do not think you are right.

Covec failed, bacause it lost its financial liquidity and wrongly calculated all costs of the contract (almost half of what other bidders asked). as a result Chinese could offer only half of what they should have paid to subcontractors (in comaprison to market prices).

according to Polish law, no public bid can be renegotiated. the price offered is the only valid one. thanks to that there is no more room for any "under-table" negotiations.


if you come to work and your employer have not paid your weight for a couple of months what you do ? definately I do not call it a boycott.

Pictures from Arad bypass motorway taken today:

First set is from the future interchange at Arad Airport:

This building will eventually be taken down, but since it's Romania they might start digging the foundation for the viaduct that needs to be build there with the building still there:






They covered part of the building to protect it from that machine... but eventually it will be demolished

Some people living nearby were going up on the bridge...



...so I followed them



View from the bridge north, to Arad Airport:
