Chinese-built dams in Argentina to spur economy

There are two Chinese-built dams under construction in southern Argentina.

They are poised to provide not just additional energy, but also a boost to the local economy.

The two dams, 1,140 megawatt Nestor Kirchner, and 600 megawatt Jorge Cepernic, are located some 2,700 km south of the capital Buenos Aires.

Currently under construction in the country’s Patagonia region, the dams are already spurring local economy with added business for hotels, transportation firms and other service providers.
