The canal, one out of many proposed, was meant to serve as robust competition for the Panama Canal, seriously changing the calculations concerning intercontinental trade and commerce. It was also meant to establish China’s footprint in the hemisphere. Today, the proposed Nicaraguan canal has not broken ground.”
