Mitsui moots Nicaragua ports investment
Nicaragua’s Official Investment Agency ProNicaragua has held talks with Japan’s Mitsui regarding possible funding of port projects.
The organisation’s investment advisor, Laureano Ortega Murillo, noted that the strategic alliance between the government and the private sector would involve the development of logistics infrastructure. In terms of ports, this would mean facilities at Corinto, Bluefields and San Juan del Sur.
Mitsui, which was represented by Portek, is active in the US, where it specialises in the construction and operation of ports.
Mr Laureano noted that both public-private investment opportunities exist in ports, as do concessions. Portek later met with the National Ports Authority (EPN).
