Spanish Government Says Colombia a Key Trade, Infrastructure Investment Partner

BARRANQUILLA, Colombia – Spain’s public works minister said Wednesday in this northern city that Colombia is a key partner of the Iberian nation in different areas, particularly in terms of trade and infrastructure investments.

“Colombia is a priority for us from the point of view of trade relations, especially in the areas of infrastructure and transportation,” Iñigo de la Serna said at the start of an official visit to the Andean nation that also will include a stop in the neighboring city of Cartagena.

After De la Serna and Colombian Transportation Minister German Cardona signed a memorandum of understanding in the transportation infrastructure and services area, the Spaniard told EFE that the “investment capacity of Spanish companies in Colombia has been clearly demonstrated.”

“We remain in a good position in terms of investment in this country, and of course we have every intention of boosting our activity further in the future,” he added.

The public works minister also plans to examine the construction of a new bridge over the Magdalena River, a project near Barranquilla that is being carried out by Spanish company Sacyr Vallehermoso and will replace the existing Pumarejo Bridge.

“We have some very emblematic works, like the one we’ll be visiting, the (new) Pumarejo Bridge, a more than 2,500-meter-long (8,200-foot-long) viaduct that marks an engineering milestone in this country,” De la Serna said.

The SES Puente Magdalena consortium, made up of Sacyr and Colombia’s Esgamo Ingenieria Constructores, is building the 615-billion-peso ($206-million) bridge, which is located near the mouth of the Magdalena River, Colombia’ principal waterway.
