Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega, right, and Chinese businessman Wang Jing arrive to sign a concession agreement for the construction of a multibillion-dollar canal at the Casa de los Pueblos in Managua, Nicaragua, Friday, June 14, 2013. Spokesmen hired by the HK Nicaragua Canal Development Investment Co. say they believe that rising world trade means it is highly likely that a new canal could be profitable. Yet they acknowledge that what will be a months-long feasibility study could prove just the opposite. (AP Photo/Esteban Felix)
