Montevideo, December 26 (RHC)-- Uruguayan President Jose Mujica has offered Bolivia and Paraguay an opening to the ocean based on a common use of a harbour for trade activities, an initiative expected to strengthen the economic system of countries within the South Common Market (MERCOSUR).
Mujica said that the harbor available for such integration is located in Rocha city, on the country's Atlantic coast, and the project will be partly funded by Brazil, while the labor will be contributed by Uruguay.
Mujica noted pointed out that integrating means building infrastructure, offering the region a port that in the best of cases is owned by the governments of the area.
According to PL news agency, with its proposal, Uruguay also looks forwards to enhancing its commerce and strengthening its financial system, based in turn on the productive development of Mercorsur countries.
