Guatemala's Departmental Council for Development (Codede) and Sibinal municipality have prioritized the financing of a $1.49 million investment in the construction of the new food market due to the importance of these facilities in stimulating the local economy, explained Francisco Mérida, regional governor.
Located in the Esquipulas municipality, in the department of Chiquimula, the airport will serve 60 to 80 passenger planes.
The new contract includes both the public market for $10 million, and also the construction of the Abasto Market for $15 million.
