The minister of the Ministry of Health of Peru said that in the process of hospital construction, the local government will fully cooperate to accelerate the improvement of necessary infrastructure construction, such as highways, sanitary drainage system, and water supply system.

It is hoped that the construction units will work together with the local government to improve the medical conditions of local people, he added.

The Zacarias Hospital project is the fifth hospital implemented by the company after four hospitals in Ayacucho, Peru. It is another breakthrough for the company in the highly competitive overseas market.

The company will continue to actively respond to the national Belt and Road Initiative, and demonstrate high-quality international management with integrity on its projects.
