Chinese premier visits bridge construction in Croatia

BRIJESTA, CROATIA — Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang has visited a construction site in Croatia where a major European Union-funded bridge is being built by a Chinese state-owned company.

The China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) won in 2018 an international bid to construct the 2.4-kilometre-long bridge over the Adriatic Sea.

The 420 million-euro construction is 85 per cent financed by the EU, and is a rare Chinese project in Europe that went through a regular bidding process.

EU officials worry that the Chinese investments boost the Asian country’s economic and political clout in the region.
