During a work tour through Altamira, the governor Egidio Torre Cantu and the General Coordinator of Mexico’s Federal Docks and Merchant Marine, Guillermo Ruiz de Teresa, together with Mexican and foreign entrepreneurs, abounded on the relevant investments this municipality is capturing, which is why this is becoming the fastest-growing logistics center in all of Mexico.

“The Altamira dock is in an expansion phase, IP and Public instances are investing jointly US$800 million in harbor infrastructure alone, with a commitment to turn Matamoros into a major operation center by 2016, disclosed Ruiz de Teresa, as he laid the first stone to build Altamira’s main motorway, a project valued over US$20million. Afterwards, they attended an inspection of the 8,500 pluvial sewer for Altamira’s industrial dock. The governor Torre Cantu and the general Coordinator of Docks, set the first stone to the Silkimya factory (a silica producer) from Venezuela, investing around US$50 million. They were also recently overseeing the Absormex CMPC Tissue’s factory expansion works, which stand for a US$120 million investment of Chilean capital.
