However, Mario Rodriguez, director of Conavi, told Nacion.com that “… with the acceptance of the deadline, the company was required to present, at the latest next week, a plan detailing the actions to guarantee that within two months the first 20 kilometers of this road will be delivered.”

Rodriguez added that “… Even in the last meeting they promised that they would give priority to achieving that (the first kilometers); we are waiting for them to fulfill what they offered. In the next meeting, they must show us how they are going to achieve what they are promising us, we hope to see in that meeting that strategy to increase production in the area.”
