Who will take control of them?
The Federal agency will formally hand over 14 Integral Port Administrations.
The Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) is preparing the formal handover of 14 Integral Port Administrations (API'S) and the Training and Education Trust for the National Merchant Marine personnel to the Ministry of the Navy, which will assume full responsibility as of June 15. As proposed by President Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador, with the change of authority in the federal ports, there will be greater control of the same in terms of security and will prevent, for example, the entry of drugs into the country through said route. By the middle of next month, the Navy will acquire the task of building, rebuilding and preserving the port works required by its new scope, as well as the maritime port and dagrado works required by the country, and authorize them when they exceed its technical and operational capabilities, in other functions.
