The deputy governor of the province of Córdoba, Manuel Calvo, met with the Chilean Ambassador to Argentina, Barbara Figueroa Sandoval, and discussed various common issues, but in particular the bi-oceanic corridor project linking central and northern Argentina with the Pacific.
Manuel Calvo recalled that at the 22nd plenary meeting of the Atacalar Integration Committee, a body made up of different regions of Argentina and Chile, a memorandum of agreement was signed requesting the Executive Power of Argentina to specify the executive project to move forward with the works of the Bi-oceanic Corridor NOA – Centro.
The deputy governor stressed that “this Bioceanic Corridor, which joins the center and north of Argentina with the Pacific, is key to integration with Chile and the federalism of our country.”
“Trade is in the Pacific Ocean, because the greatest demand for food comes from Asian countries and the Bioceanic Corridor has to be that connection. This will allow us to export and import, generate greater production and more jobs”, concluded Manuel Calvo.
During the meeting, which was also attended by the Consul of Chile in Córdoba, Juan Carlos Gantes Peña; the first secretary of the Chilean Embassy in Argentina, Patricio Williams, and Pro Chile’s commercial attaché in Argentina, Raimundo Swett, also discussed intensifying social, cultural, artistic, sports, and brotherhood ties with the Republic of Chile.
