Dredging of the Mazatlan port has domestic and foreign investors interested


The governor of Durango said that this project must go hand in hand with the railroad

Mazatlan, Sin. The governor of Durango, José Rosas Aispuro, continues in the management together with the governor of Sinaloa, Quirino Ordaz, before the federal government, so that resources for the dredging of the port of Mazatlan are allocated.

He revealed that there is interest from private investors, both national and foreign companies, interested in carrying out this project of great regional importance.

What we have proposed to the President of the Republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is that we take advantage of the interest of investors so that, without making an outlay with resources, this work can be done, we have a lot of confidence in them 
José Rosas Aispuro 

He hoped that the work is done and not necessarily with public resources, because it is a self-financing work, because it would be the most important port in northern Mexico for connectivity with the entire Asian continent, China, Japan and Korea.

He said that in the case of northern Mexico to the United States, it will be the easiest access route, because today the most accessible ports such as Manzanillo and Lázaro Cárdenas, are already more towards the center of the country, and this port is the more strategic for the whole north.

Rosas Aispuro said that they are working on several proposals from national investors, such as foreign companies, that have expressed their interest to invest, not only in the high port of Mazatlan, but also in the railroad.

It is a complementary work, the port without the Durango-Mazatlan railway does not give us the benefit we want, so it has to be two works, which have to go hand in hand

The governor of Durango said they already have permission to release the right of 130 kilometers, which is Durango to the City of Pueblo Nuevo, and there is already a part where this infrastructure was, when the rail system was disintegrated in the country.

He admitted that the tracks were vandalized, but it has the most important, the right of way that is guaranteed, there are parts of those tunnels that have to adapt to the circumstances, because they are more modern trains.

He pointed out that for this project a very strong investment is required, however there are Chinese investors and national companies, who have expressed their interest in investing in this project to the Ministry of Communications and Transportation.

In the first stage of the National Guard in Durango, about 450 elements of the 900 that will arrive, are already in operation, and are located in the Laguna area and the capital city.
