Bi-oceanic corridor to be inaugurated mid-November (Chile)
Chilean President Sebastian Piñera will meet with his Bolivian and Brazilian counterparts, Evo Morales and Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva respectively, to inaugurate a bi-oceanic highway corridor in mid-November, an official from Chile's foreign ministry told BNamericas.


The highway corridor will run from Brazil's largest port, Santos in Sao Paulo state, through Bolivian departments Santa Cruz, Cochabamba and Oruro, and on to northern Chile's Pacific coast cities of Arica and Iquique.


The highway totals more than 5,800km, of which 1,528km are in Bolivia.


A minimum of 2Mt/y of cargo is expected to be transported along the corridor, which is also an essential part of the South American infrastructure integration initiative IIRSA.
