«There is a Korean company that contacted us four days ago to come next week, they are interested in operating the shipyard, but there is also another English company» — Flores emphasized.

Flores stated that with being just an initiative that is very advanced, he has glimpsed how it has generated great expectation. «I believe that this is going to be the largest maritime project that the country is going to have» — he said.
