(Yicai Global) Dec. 27 -- A Chinese international project contractor will work with its partner in Cote d'Ivoire on a project worth about EUR128 million to design and build government office buildings, data centers and supporting facilities in the country.
Representing a consortium that includes local partner Snedai Groupe, China National Complete Plant Import & Export Complete signed a contract on Dec. 24 with the country's Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, the Beijing-based company said late yesterday.
The consortium will design the project, provide technical equipment, build and maintain related facilities and train employees involved in the project, the statement said.
