More than 10 international companies from Europe, Asia, America and Latin America have submitted bids for the administration of Puerto La Union, although the tender process will be carried out during the rest of the year, said Alberto Arene, president of the Executive Committee of Autonomous Ports (CEPA in Spanish).
The bill provides for a 30 year concession and an investment plan of at least $30 million.
The Autonomous Executive Port Commission (CEPA) is working on the conditions for the tender for the concession of the port terminal.
At least 10 international companies have expressed interest in the public process to award the operation of port La Union in El Salvador.
According to private operators, shipping companies will continue using port Acajutla, so the new port would only generate losses for the Salvadoran state.
