Today we are delivering this important highway, which truly expands the connectivity that our country has and which we have been promoting and strengthened.

These 52 highways and 80 Federal roads that were expanded and modernized, enabled us to generate better connectivity between the different regions of the country, and thereby also ensure greater competitiveness”: EPN
