Through the project, CSCEC created more than 2,000 jobs directly and 20,000 jobs indirectly. A large group wedding for 19 couples was hosted by CSCEC during the construction period. The project department also recruited a team of volunteers to help students, teachers, and senior citizens living in and around the project sites, as well as the employees facing difficulties. 

3. Doraleh Port project in Djibouti 

It is the largest port project contracted to Chinese enterprises in northeastern Africa, and CSCEC's first and largest overseas marine project. Phase I of Doraleh Port, with an annual cargo throughput of 7,080,000 metric tons and a container throughput of 200,000 standard units, provides services for docking different types of ships and handling cargos of all sorts, which largely enhances Djibouti's transportation capacity and its role as a container hub.

Connecting central and southern provinces of Zambia, it is the first road traversing Kafue River Basin and the National Forest Park. The completion of the project ended the history of seasonal passing in Kafue. From then on, people were able to enter and exit the forest around the year, which bolstered the local economy. The Kafue National Park also saw a tax revenue increase of 120-150%.  

Affordable housing projects

The plan for the project is to build 1,370 affordable housing units and provide a demonstrative benchmark for the construction of 500,000 units of affordable housing in Kenya. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and Fiji Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama separately visited the project, and both highly praised the construction progress.

The Dikgatlhong Reservoir is located in Central Botswana. It is the largest reservoir in the country with a capacity of 400 million cubic meters. This reservoir is an important hub of the North-South Carrier water transfer project in Botswana. After it is put into use, it will be able to carry more than 60 million cubic meters of water to the capital city of Gaborone every year, which will effectively alleviate the shortage of water resources in Gaborone and improve the living standards of residents along the pipeline.

2. The largest livelihood water conservancy project in Ecuador 

It is the first water conservancy project CSCEC undertook after it entered the South American market. Upon completion, it can guarantee the water supply for an irrigation area of nearly 350,000 hectares, which will greatly reduce the adverse impact of bad weather and benefit about 560,000 Ecuadorians. In this project, CCIEE undertook the repair of two dams, the demolition and renovations of five irrigation stations, the expansion of one pump station, the operation and maintenance of two pump stations, and the production and installation of 3,000 meters of water pipes.
