Alejandro Bueno, Eurofinsa's manager in Bolivia, participates in the first seminar on the integration bioceanic rail corridor

Alejandro Bueno recently signed a new contract awarded to Eurofinsa by the Bolivian Government. The Spanish construction company will be in charge of the construction of a new potable water pumping project in Sucre, Bolivia. The investment will amount to €2.9 million.

Cochabamba, Bolivia, held last March 8 and 9 the First High Level Workshop-Seminar Bolivia-UK on the Integration Bioceanic Rail Corridor (known in Spanish as CFBI). The event, organized by the British Embassy, was attended by Alejandro Bueno, Eurofinsa’s manager in Bolivia, that took a leading part on behalf of Eurofinsa UK.

Eurofinsa’s participation in the CFBI event

The Integration Bioceanic Rail Corridor (CFBI) is an important project, both for Bolivia and for the European countries. That is the reason why the attendance of British representatives at the High Level Workshop-Seminar played an essential role.

Minister of Public Works, Services and Housing, Milton Claros, and UK’s Ambassador in Bolivia, James Thornton, signed a Memorandum of Understanding that confirms the commitment and collaboration between both countries to carrying out the project. One of the main points treated, among others, was the possibility to finance the project by Public-Private Partnership (PPP) models. Alejandro Bueno participated actively in this regard.

The Eurofinsa’s manager in Bolivia explained that the Public-Private Partnership financing model is possible with the infrastructures and administrations available in Bolivia. Bueno’s statement is based on the experience that the company initiated in Peru in order to manage the Alberto Leonardo Barton Thomson and Guillermo Kaelin de la Fuente hospital complexes.

The PPP co-management was positively received at national and international levels, as well as by the patients themselves. The implementation of the new financing model in 2014 resulted in noteworthy improvements in terms of how patients are treated, the reduction of the queues and the waiting list, as well as a greater ease of use of health care services.

Alejandro Bueno’s participation on this relevant event was so notable that the Public Works, Services and Housing Ministry mentioned Bueno’s speech on social media.

Eurofinsa and the potable water pumping project in Bolivia

Alejandro Bueno recently signed a new contract awarded to Eurofinsa by the Bolivian Government. The Spanish construction company will be in charge of the construction of a new potable water pumping project in Sucre, Bolivia. The investment will amount to €2.9 million.

This project confirms once again that Bolivian administrative authorities rely on Eurofinsa to carry out economically and socially relevant projects. The Spanish company will make potable water available to over 426,000 residents in the region, using a system that will provide 500 liters per second.

The water pumping system is the third project of Eurofinsa in Bolivia. The company had previously built a road in Tarija, an infrastructure requiring an investment of €65.36 million.

Moreover, the company was awarded a project related to potable water supply and sewage system, in Riberalta, a town where there are over 14,000 families.

The fact that Bolivians authorities rely on the company to face such a relevant challenge is an honor for Eurofinsa. Alejandro Bueno had already highlighted the importance of this reliance with the last project awarded. Now, the Spanish company will have to rise to the new challenge that aims to improve the quality of life of the population.

Eurofinsa receives the task as a new recognition in another country in Latin America. The company had already started numerous projects related to infrastructure, water supply, health or energy, among others awarded projects, in countries such as Peru, Ecuador, El Salvador, Colombia, Panama, Honduras and Dominican Republic.

The ability to design, execute and built the awarded projects in every phase of construction, as well as boosting local employment and the economic development of the area, are some of the main principles that support the increasing presence of Eurofinsa in these countries.
