The Ministry of Finance proposed to invest 3,509 million pesos in the Interoceanic Corridor of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec by 2021.
The Interoceanic Corridor of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec seeks to create conditions that trigger the economic and social growth of the regions of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec and the south-southeast of the country, re-establishing the well-being of the inhabitants of 46 municipalities of Oaxaca and 33 of Veracruz, for the benefit of 2.2 million inhabitants of the region.
The resources provided in the Economic Package for 2021 will allow the consolidation of the actions so that the Interoceanic Corridor of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec formally begins operations.
In particular, the port of Coatzacoalcos will be modernized, which will allow the docking of larger vessels and create the connectivity of the Coatzacoalcos API with the Boulevard Morelos.
In 2021, the construction of a railway bridge will be carried out that will connect the API with the Pajaritos industrial corridor, as well as the installation of fiber optics and video surveillance cameras.
While in the Salina Cruz API, the construction of the west breakwater of the oil and commercial port will continue, in order to make the operations in the handling of oil products in the port terminal more efficient.
