PANAMA CITY (Reuters) - A Spanish-led consortium has resumed expansion work on the Panama Canal, a source close to negotiations said on Thursday, raising hopes the sides will finally draw a line under an acrimonious stand-off over massive cost overruns.
As workers returned to the construction site after a more than two week stoppage, a separate source close to the consortium led by Spanish builder Sacyr and Italy's Salini Impregilo said it had resolved internal disagreements over the key issue of financing.
