According to the World Bank representative, Luis Constantino, the project will contribute to the economic development of the area.

“We think this road will create many opportunities for the Caribbean population and give them the same opportunities as the rest of the people of Nicaragua have. This is the most important project we are funding in Nicaragua right now, ” said Constantino.

For his part, the Minister of Finance (Ministerio de Hacienda y Crédito Público), Ivan Acosta, said the road project will not only benefit the social aspects of the Caribbean, but also increase competition and investment generation for the country.

The project will affect directly some 52.908 residents of the area.
