The Economic Activities Center in Buenaventura -CAEB-

 

The CAEB, pilot project of the “New Cities” Program of the National Planning Department -DNP-, essentially represents an economic and social development model for Buenaventura that could involve an area of up to 4.000 hectares.

The economic pillar in this initiative aims to exploit the untapped port and logistics potential of the city, through the promotion, construction, operation and maintenance of a significantly large economic activities area. The social pillar, on the other hand, focuses on fostering integral development of this city’s inhabitants, based on State interventions aimed at improving Buenaventura’s -special district- social and physical infrastructure.

Project summary (overview):
