Philippine province cancels award for China Communications' $10 bln airport project

A Philippine province has cancelled its award of a $10 billion airport deal south of the capital, local project proponent MacroAsia Corp said on Wednesday.

China Communications Construction Co (CCCC) and MacroAsia in 2019 won the auction to partner with the Cavite provincial government to upgrade the Sangley airport.

CCCC was among the Chinese firms blacklisted by the United States in August for their roles in constructing and militarising artificial South China Sea islands.
