INTERVIEW to Antonio Tajani: In the Panama Canal crisis, “Europeans speak with a unique voice. That’s already a message.”

BRUSSELS | By Jacobo de Regoyos | The consortium responsible for the Panama Canal expansion, led by Spanish company Sacyr, and the Panama Canal Authority (PCA) agreed on negotiating a new framework until next February 1 in order to achieve a definitive solution to the economic problems of the project and ensure its conclusion. EC Industry Commissioner and Vice-President is doing everything he can to make both parties come to terms. Although everyone is avoiding the word “mediation” not to interfere with the arbitration process set by contract, Antonio Tajani does want to mediate. However, at the time of this interview with The Corner he has not met with any person in charge of the Latin American country yet. The enthusiasm he showed offering his help has not been corresponded across the Atlantic so far.
