MANZANILLO — Recently was announced the expansion of the Manzanillo port towards the Cuyutlán Lagoon. The projected investment which is led by the pilot aviator Hector Mora, (with public and private participation), represents 66% of the resources that were allocated in the expansion of Veracruz to Vergara Bay.
