More companies are interested in the possibility of operating the nation's port system, including maritime terminals at Acajutla and the still-under-construction port at La Unión, says Vice President Ana Vilma de Escobar.
The project presented by the Government to the Legislative Assembly proposed the concession of both the La Union and the Acajutla ports to one operator.
For vice president Ana Vilma de Escobar, it will be difficult to consider the port concession again due to the political situation.
Although it is not definitive, it seems that the various sectors have agreed that the La Union Port will be granted in concession to an international operator.
According to private operators, shipping companies will continue using port Acajutla, so the new port would only generate losses for the Salvadoran state.
