Bolivia is included in the Bi-oceanic Integration Railroad Corridor project said the Minister of Public Works and Services, Edgar Montano, after lamenting that opponents misinform about it, with the purpose of sowing doubts in the population about this route of international integration. The statement comes after it became known that the Government of Paraguay is advancing by displacing Bolivia from the project.
The authority, according to ABI, specified that the main bi-oceanic corridor in South America crosses Brazil, Bolivia, Peru and Chile, as it is known historically and that any alternate route is secondary, as well as the corridor that is promoted from Paraguay, Argentina and Chile.
Montano regretted that the disinformed opposition Bolivians on this issue to form a smokescreen, due to the constant blockades in the department of Santa Cruz and against Governor Luis Fernando Camacho.
“The supposed exclusion of Bolivia in the bi-oceanic corridor was an argument that the opposition raised when Mr. Luis Fernando Camacho, governor of Santa Cruz, was cornered by the blockades in San Julián and Cuatro Cañadas,” he said.
The head of Public Works assured that Bolivia is not excluded from this important international project because at present the Bolivian railway system, made up of the Andean Network and the Eastern Network, has advanced in its construction, says a press release from the Ministry of Public Works.
Montaño indicated that the Government central is building the interconnection of two networks through the Montero-Bulo Bulo railway project, since its roads maintain the metric gauge throughout its length, which allows interconnection with Brazil and Argentina on the eastern part, and on the western area it interconnects with Peru.
