A cargo ship passes next to the Gatun locks, waiting to go trough to the Atlantic Ocean next to locks under construction on January 12, 2014 in Panama City. The Grupo Unidos por el Canal (GUPC) consortium led by Spanish builder Sacyr --which includes Italian, Belgian and Panamanian companies-- has threatened to suspend the expansion work by January 20 unless Panama pays for $1.6 billion in 'unforeseen' costs. The Panama Canal Authority proposed the creation of a special $283 million fund to ensure the work continues, but the companies asked for a larger contribution from the Panamanians.
