Latin American development bank CAF has signed a US$3m grant agreement to fund pre-investment studies for part of the Bolivian section of the proposed Bioceanic Railway Integration Corridor which would connect Ilo in Peru with Santos in Brazil.
The agreement, signed with the Bolivian government in La Paz on October 3, covers engineering design studies for the Bulo Bulo – Ivirgarzama – Villa Tunari priority sub-sections of the corridor. It also includes technical and regulatory analysis to ensure future interoperability between Bolivia, Brazil and Peru.
‘This financial assistance by CAF will not only enable Bolivia to complete its internal railway interconnection network, thereby improving logistics for domestic exports, but will also help develop the integration project that will turn Bolivia into a hub between the two oceans’, said CAF President Luis Carranza. ‘The challenge is to achieve greater regional integration infrastructure to reduce logistical costs and foster productive complementarity among countries of the region.’
