Mexican Bureacracy Holding Up Port Projects Nationwide, Columnist Says

The Mexican government agency responsible for overseeing construction and operations of seaports has delayed more than $10 billion worth of infrastructure projects, not counting the delayed Punta Colonet mega-port project, according to Excelsior columnist Dario Celis. Twenty-seven projects, including construction of five new ports (Punta Colonet, Manzanillo, Veracruz, Seybaplaya and Puerto Madero) in the National Infrastructure Plan are affected. Celis blames General Coordinator of Ports & Merchant Marine Alejandro Chacon for much of the delay, writing that Chacon has not been sufficiently engaged in the process to resolve legal issues and clear away bureaucratic roadblocks.

  1. I read this yesterday in Spanish, and the article DID SAY that sources in the Mexican government want the Punta Colonet Port to be their primary focus - at least to get started...

    Feeling like a three year old not getting his way: Here I sit, waiting for bids to go out so I can give up everything I own to take a chance at working on construction of this port (Punta Colonet) and living on the Pacific; and good ol' Mexican bureaucracy has me pounding my "high chair"!!! ;)
