They all agree that the window of opportunity which El Salvador has by having already built the port will not last much longer: Guatemala, Costa Rica and Mexico are also very attractive.
The Legislature has passed a law allowing the concession for the Puerto La Union.
After an arduous process, the government of Costa Rica has signed a concessionary award to Dutch run APM Terminals for the construction of the port and its management for a period of 30 years.
Members of the Finance Committee have reached a consensus on the concession system to be used for operations at the La Union port.
The combined concession of the La Unión and Acajutla ports is said to interest the Dutch company.
