Alejandro Rossi, director of the United Nations Agency for Project Services (Unops), which is in charge of managing the project, made the announcement on August 7.

According to Rossi, progress was achieved through compliance with rigorous health protocols and following the recommendations issued by the health authorities of both countries.
