Air Terminal Expansion Rejected

In El Salvador, a union of employees at the Monseñor Romero airport opposes the project to expand the cargo terminal, which is expected to be developed through a public-private alliance.

Wednesday, December 19, 2018

The project to expand the cargo terminal of the air terminal, under the concept of a public-private partnership (APP), already has a draft of the tender bases, however, is rejected by the Union of Workers of the Airport Industry and Related (SITTEAIES).

Regarding the reasons why trade unionists oppose it, the general secretary of the SITTEAIES said that "... For us it is a privatization. What is the need for CEPA to deliver an institution that generates income? To improve the service we don't need $30 million, otherwise we will do it as the cargo grows in our country'."

On the other hand, the vice-president of the republic, Óscar Ortiz, said to Laprensagrafica.com that "... a series of meetings have been convened to discuss the matter. There are already some final assessments. This day (yesterday) I met with PROESA and CEPA, we will meet before the end of the year with the executive director of FOMILENIO and MCC to make a proposal and try to streamline the process."

On the other hand, Wiliam Pleites, executive director of FOMILENIO II, explained that "... There is time to withdraw the APP,' but stated that the APP is shortened in terms of the deadlines in which the institutions responsible for reviewing the documents must approve them."
