Govt submits proposal to Sintrajap to modernize Limón, Moín ports (Costa Rica)

Costa Rica's government has submitted a proposal to Atlantic port authority Japdeva's labor union Sintrajap to modernize the Limón and Moín ports and strengthen organization at the port authority.

Japdeva, Sintrajap, and the transport and labor ministries met to discuss the proposal, together with other issues such as a plan to keep the two ports open 365 days a year, according to a government release.

The parties are due to meet again on Wednesday (Mar 16) to discuss the proposal, which include plans to reorganize the port authority, prioritize investments and implement cost-cutting measures to save some 3.5bn colones (US$7.12mn) that could be used to buy new port equipment.

Costa Rica's government has been trying for several years to concession Moín and Limón ports, and strong union opposition has been a factor in the failure of past projects.
