On Friday (8) in Macao, one of the main commitments was made on the agenda of the Deputy Governor of Bahia, João Leão, and Secretary of the Civil House, Bruno Dauster, on an international mission in China. At the meeting, the State Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), together with the China Railway 20 Bureau Group Co (CR20), which guarantees the company’s intention to participate in the Western Road System (SVO) bidding process, which includes the Salvador-Itaparica Bridge.
The CR20, a member of the China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) group, one of the three largest construction companies in the world, has already secured the study of the pre-project for the construction of the Salvador-Itaparica Bridge and financing proposals under review. These requirements already guarantee the capacity of the company, if it is the winner of the future bid, to become the executor of the equipment.
The document was signed by the president of the CR20, Wang Wenzhong, and the deputy governor of Bahia. The secretary of the Civil Cabinet stressed that “the Government of Bahia has, today, all the conditions and the capacity to make the Bridge technically and economically viable”. Dauster also drew attention to the fact that “Chinese construction companies are demonstrating full confidence that the bridge is viable, will soon be initiated and will mark yet another step for Bahia’s future development.”
