Government officials were presented with the Economic and Financial Report for the Pacific Airport project by the Peyco-ALBEN 4000 Consortium.
Federico Anliker, president of the Autonomous Port Executive Commission (CEPA), informed that the study is in the last phase to determine the feasibility of the airport in the eastern zone.
“This means that we already have the technical, market, social impact, environmental and now the economic-financial report of the project that will allow us to know data on the generation of direct and indirect jobs, social and economic benefits, as well as an analysis of infrastructure costs, operation, sustainability and income projection”, explained the head of CEPA.
Anliker added that it is estimated that in the first year of operations of the Pacific Airport around 4,700 new jobs will be generated.
The construction of the airport is aimed at turning the eastern part of the country into a center of economic development, encouraging the growing demand of passengers and developing international tourism.
For his part, Alberto Gómez Serranillos, manager of the Peyco- ALBEN 4000 study, said that in the social impacts they detected the improvement of living conditions, so that in 10 years the project would generate 50,000 jobs.
The Government informed that it is working to develop better living conditions for Salvadorans, increase the economy and boost national tourism.
