Authorities, private sector to determine five-port development plan (Colombia)
Colombia's national planning department (DNP) is working with the transport ministry and the private sector to draw up a five-port development plan for the next four years, a DNP official told BNamericas.


The five port development projects will be carried out over the 2011-2014 period and involve expanding existing port facilities in Turbo, Contecar and Aguadulce, and building new terminals in Puerto Nuevo and Tribuga.


The projects will be carried out by the private sector through concession contracts under Colombia's port investment law.


Roads and other connecting infrastructure to the ports may also be improved through concessioned projects, the official added.


The public and private sectors are currently determining the investment required for each of the port projects, including road infrastructure, as well as determining the schedule.


Details of the plan are expected to be released by end-January, said the official.
