Panama Canal deal reached
Terms agreed to complete expansion28 February, 10:34
Work was halted earlier this month because of a dispute over cost overruns totalling $1.6 billion.
However, suppliers have reportedly been paid, freeing the way for work to resume.
Italian company Salini-Impregilo makes up 38% of the consortium working on the $5.25-billion expansion project.
The Spanish-led consortium, known as the as Grupo Unidos Por el Canal (GUPC), and the Panama Canal Authority have been locked in a dispute over the cost overruns for weeks.
Some 10,000 jobs have reportedly been affected by the dispute.
