  • Description

    Construction workers, engineers and architects are working round the clock in Chile's capital of Santiago in a race to complete a 10 million dollar (four million sterling) conference centre by April.

    The centre is being built to house the third United Nations Trade and Development Conference (UNCTAD 111) to be attended by more than 3,000 delegates from 140 developing countries. Chile's Marxist-led Government offered last March to stage the conference, but left itself only a year to complete the building. Experts say the thousand men working round the clock may just finish in time.
