Decree 54/019 extends the area of ​​port influence of the Port of Montevideo provided by clause 1 of the Decree dated September 8, 1909 and by clause 1 of the Maritime Regulation of the Port of Montevideo of 1912.

The management was promoted by the National Ports Administration related to the expansion of the port area of ​​influence of the Port of Montevideo.

Project Punta Yeguas of the Chinese group

The Port Operations and Port Captaincy Regulations approved by the Decree dated April 28, 1994, established the geographical limits for the implementation of port regulations, defining the area of ​​port influence within which the National Ports Administration will have the competences of port administration.

Considering that Decree 386/008, dated August 11, 2008, entrusted the National Ports Administration with the functions of administration, conservation and development of the Logistics Port of Puntas de Sayago, located in part of the Padrón No. 416.849 of the 13 Judicial Section of the department of Montevideo.

Uruguayan-Argentine common zone and purple tuna fishing zone

As the port planning foresees the expansion and development of the Port of Montevideo to that area, it is appropriate to expand the area of ​​port influence as a mechanism to encourage the development of port projects in the future.

Therefore, pursuant to Resolution No. 572 / 3.943 dated August 28, 2018 of the Board of Directors of the aforementioned National Administration, the following was proposed to the executive branch: "the expansion of the port area of ​​influence of the Port of Montevideo, incorporating the surfaces of waters and ridges included between the lines bordering Punta Mares with Punta Pedregal and Punta Pedregal with Punta Canario and the one corresponding to the coast between both lines, in accordance with Nautical Chart No. 40 ".

Project in Port Expansion area

In Punta Yeguas work would be carried out including an 800-meter-long and 60-meter wide pier, with an investment that would be around USD 250 million and that, based on the corresponding tax negotiation with the government, the Shandong Baoma Fishery Group would create about 200 direct jobs.

The Chinese company has about 4000 employees and has branches throughout China. Currently, it specializes in ocean fishing, processing and sale of marine products and fishmeal processing and management of port terminals.

Processing of permits in the town of Montevideo

The Chinese consortium requested the town of Montevideo to recategorize the land already purchased for the installation of the project in question.

Customs Authorization

The National Customs Office must approve the "customs area" in order to obtain the quality of "Free Port".

Healthy Oceans Project

Milko Schvartzman, who was interviewed several times, said that at the organisation they oppose the installation of said Chinese consortium because "illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing is destroying the South Atlantic marine environment" and that "the only reason why China wants to settle in Montevideo is to avoid controls and because it uses slave labour."
