Bolivia's government is to create a public fluvial transport company (EPTF) to operate on the four largest branches of the Amazon river.


The subsidized public transportation project aims to link small towns on the river's edge with larger cities and department capitals, state news agency ABI reported.


EPTF plans to begin operating 10-12 ships, to transport passengers and cargo, during 1Q11.


Planning and development minister Viviana Caro will present the project for financing in December, the report said.
