During a televised speech, the mayor of Guayaquil, Jaime Nebot, spoke last Sunday night to inform about the situation of the port of Guayaquil, after the recent statements of the Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa and the Minister of Transport, Maria de los Angeles Duarte.
“This future outlook proposed by the Government: our current Seaport will go to tourism and cabotage of Galapagos; the new seaport will not be in the Canton Guayaquil or any other private ports of Guayaquil. It will remain outside the port system, the private deepwater port of Posorja will not be built anymore, and will be constructed with public money, in Manta,” said Mayor Nebot in his transmission.
Nebot referred to the Strategic Mobility Plan, promoted by the regime, indicating that this intends that the local activity of Guayaquil “is reduced” to cabotage of Galapagos and tourism, and therefore the city and other private ports “will be left out of port system of Ecuador.”
He quoted that they aim to stop the construction of the deepwater port of Posorja, as on page 102 of the report states that the port would not be in Guayaquil, but between General Villamil and Chanduy. “Next to Guayaquil, which is not in Guayaquil. The government cannot deprive the county of its natural port of Guayaquil,” said Nebot, after criticizing the idea exposed by the leader of the regime, Rafael Correa.
