US$80 million for strategic border pass between Argentina and Chile

June 28, 2006
CAF approved a loan operation for Argentina to finance the project "Rehabilitation and Paving of the El Pehuenche International Pass" to develop the road infrastructure of this important trans-Andean pass.
This border pass, in Mendoza province, as well as being an integral part of the IIRSE bi-oceanic corridor, will open an alternative pass which will decongest vehicle traffic on the Cristo Redentor route.
