The article discusses the delay of an 80.2 kilometer railway line between the Philippine cities of Caloocan to Clark as of March 2011. It states that the country borrowed 400 million dollars from the Export-Import Bank of China, and 103 million dollars from other sources. Sinomach, a Chinese company, was awarded the contract, but was hampered by changes set by the government, squatters along the route and exchange rate fluctuations. The new administration, however, has launched a review of the project, but still has to pay the monthly interest rates.
