Port project worth $1bn to make Costa Rica major logistics center
The facility, which would be built in Limon province, is a private project being developed by AMEGA, an international consortium.
The consortium has already received the go-ahead from Costa Rica’s government to develop a concession proposal that includes technical feasibility, environmental impact and financing studies.
The National Concessions Council gave the consortium the green light on February 3, giving AMEGA 360 days to present the project proposal to the government.
The consortium began working on the project in 2006 in an effort to find a site in Central America near the Panama Canal to use as a transshipment port, AMEGA partner Carlos Dengo told EFE. ■
