The Nicaragua Grand Canal project is funded by a Hong Kong businessman who is adamant that the Chinese government not be involved in the project. Given the participation of China’s government in all aspects of life, this is unusual.

The canal will split the country in two and six municipalities will find themselves divided. There will be only one bridge across the canal along its entire length.
