China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC), a subsidiary of Sinomach, agreed a 500-kilovolt power transmission and transformation ring network project with Uruguay on May 31. It makes great sense for Chinese enterprises to further explore Latin America’s infrastructure construction market.

An online signing ceremony was held to mark the agreement. Uruguayan Ambassador to China Fernando Lugris and the executive director of CMEC attended the event in Beijing, and Chinese Ambassador to Uruguay Wang Gang and Uruguayan government staff also witnessed the signing via video link.

They also shared opinions on the implementation of the project, and hoped that it will set an example for China-Uruguay cooperation and play a positive role in promoting the development of the Belt and Road Initiative in Latin America.
