The deputy governor of La Pampa, Mariano Fernández, received in his office Parlasur legislators, Nelson Nocoletti (La Pampa) and Gastón Harispe (province of Buenos Aires), to discuss different ideas for the completion of the Pehuenche Pass.
During the talk, the possibility arose of generating a movement for the creation of a consortium between provinces, municipalities and regions, both in Argentina and Chile, so that they can work towards the Bioceanic Corridor.
The idea is that from this consortium the interest can be brought to the national governments to be able to carry out the necessary works to enable the Pehuenche Pass, which is fundamental in the economy of the entire region.
The president of the Legislature of the Pampas, since he is lieutenant governor, works intensely to join forces in pursuit of this work. “We have to take another step to generate a state policy, and the idea of a consortium in the region would be very important,” said Mariano Fernández during the meeting.
For his part, legislator Harispe pointed out that “we are thinking about a new twist on the debate that Nelson Nicoletti and Mariano Fernández inaugurated on the Bioceanic Corridors.” “We seek to carry out in Patagonia a scheme similar to Zicosur (Integration Zone of the Central West of South America), which is an inter-institutional proposal between the states of Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Chile and Uruguay,” he stated.
