The environment minister, Alfonso Alonso, explained to Dca.gob.gt that " ... the System will have the capacity to inform interested parties, in less than 10 minutes, whether an environmental impact study that is submitted to obtain a license is viable or not, something which previously took between 3 to 4 months."
