Mexican Navy to Manage Country’s Ports


Harbour authorities in Mexico, overseen by the Communications and Transportation Secretariat (SCT), have proven to be incapable of inspecting at least 20% of foreign vessels which dock at the country’s ports, and as a result, may lead to the Mexican Navy managing the operations of all of the nation’s ports, according to Mexico News Daily.

The administration of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto called for the transfer of all duties at the ports to the Secretariat of the Navy.

Mexico is currently going through a decade-long political struggle, and the decision made by the Mexican Administration is presumably in line with efforts to quell the issue of poor security at Mexico’s ports.

However, despite the issues occurring in Mexico, the Mexican economy could be in line to see further growth of 2.7% in 2016 and continue its recovery from the financial crisis, according to Forbes.
