    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The government of Costa Rica announced its support for the second major port project in the province of Limon (Caribbean), which is worth about $900 million and will be built in the coming years.

    The project consists of a “mega container transhipment terminal” by the company America’s Gateway Development Corporation (Amega) and will be developed along with public works.

    The president of Costa Rica, Luis Guillermo Solis said in a statement that the government’s support this project demonstrates its commitment to the development of the Limon province and the country, and said it must be done in strict compliance with environmental legislation.

    “A project of this size it is a strategic asset for Costa Rica and a powerful engine of social and economic development for the Caribbean. The project will strengthen the position of Puerto Limon as one of the main ports of Latin America, diversify their productive activities and generate quality jobs,” said Solis.

    Costa Rican Minister of Foreign Trade, Alexander Mora, said that this type of infrastructure will enable Costa Rica to seize the opportunities arising from the expansion of the Panama Canal.

    The minister said the government is moving in line with the necessary procedures for the establishment of a trust to start with the first steps of the project’s development.

    This is the second major port project that seeks to develop Costa Rica in the province of Limon.

    The other is a container terminal valued at $1 billion by the Dutch company APM Terminals, which could begin building next year.

    The project faces opposition by unions since they believe that it establishes an “illegal monopoly” for the loading and unloading of containers.

    APM is just waiting for the authorities to endorse the EIS to start building the port. (EFE)
