“As part of the security adjustments in the ports of Quintana Roo, the federal government authorized a special investment of 40 million pesos to “shield” 10 maritime terminals”, said the director of the Port Administration (Apiqroo), Alicia Magaña Ricalde .
At a press conference, the official explained that the process includes risk analysis by specialists from the federal government that will allow, within six months, the ports of Quintana Roo to be the first in Mexican cabotage – with routes to the interior of the country-, in having the Ship and Port Facilities Protection Code (PBIP).
This protection protocol has been only applied in ports that cover international routes.
The official said that a few days ago, authorities of the three levels of government met in Mexico City, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel signed an agreement on different actions to strengthen, in a coordinated manner, the safety of the shipping terminals along the coast of Quintana Roo.
