China Railway Says Six Dubai Projects Are Progressing Normally
China Railway Construction Corp. (1186) said the projects it has in Dubai are not connected to the state holding company of the Middle Eastern emirate that is struggling with $59 billion in debt, and are operating normally.
Dubai’s government said Nov. 25 that Dubai World would seek a standstill agreement with creditors and an extension of loan maturities until at least May 30, 2010. The announcement led to the biggest declines in Asian shares in three months last week and Europe’s worst rout since April.
