New Hotel in Praia, Cape Verde

The new hotel and casino planned for Praia is expected to be operational in two and a half years time. The complex, which is to be built on the island of Santa Maria in Praia will also include a marina and convention centre. The project is a Chinese initiative and is to be constructed by a contractor from Beijing. Work on a bridge to link the island to Praia will commence shortly.
