Project Description

From the IDB: "The objective of this technical cooperation is to support the economic integration of Nicaragua, through pre-feasibility and feasibility studies for the development of the Bluefields international port, as part of a multimodal logistic corridor of national and international relevance, and the formulation of a national cargo logistics plan. The pre-investment studies of the port, will analyze the technical, socio-environmental, economic, financial, and institutional feasibility of the project and its connections, and the benefits of its connection to a multimodal logistics corridor, derived from regional integration such as scale, attracting investment, access to global markets and goods and services at more competitive prices. These connections are fundamental to make a decisive advance in the integration and territorial cohesion of Nicaragua, contributing to the reduction of asymmetries at both national and regional levels. The National Cargo Logistics Plan (PNLOG) will establish a comprehensive policy and action framework for the development of logistics corridors for national and regional integration, promoting innovative financing schemes in these corridors."
