Chinese banks and builders may get role in Almere route

Investment bank NIBC is considering involving Chinese banks and civil engineers if it wins contracts to build new roads, tunnels and bridges between Amsterdam and Almere, the Financieele Dagblad reports.

NIBC is one of a number of groups planning to compete for contracts in the €1.5bn project which the government is currently preparing to put out to tender.
‘If we win the contract, bringing in Chinese expertise is an option. The Chinese are fast, efficient and have proved they can build well,’ CEO Jeroen Drost said in an interview with the paper.
NIBC already has contacts with the Beijing Urban Construction Group and a number of banks, the paper says.
