Puerto La Unión starts Operations
Facing closure of the Port of Acajutla for repairs, the Salvadoran government decided to start operations in La Unión Port.
Monday, July 27, 2009
President Mauricio Funes announced: "While the repair and restructuring works continue in the Port of Acajutla, it must be closed, and the cargo will be transferred to La Unión".
The "ASAP" start of operations of the port, announced by President Funes, will be delayed for over 18 months.
According to private operators, shipping companies will continue using port Acajutla, so the new port would only generate losses for the Salvadoran state.
Drafting a law decree for giving La Unión's operation under concession could take more than two years.
Some of the proposals reviewed include making CEPA the administrator and operator of the port of La Unión.
