According to the local rumor mill, construction on the new pier is scheduled to begin on May 6, the Monday after the fishing tournament. At this point everyone says they'll believe it when they see it, because we've been given lots of dates that came and went without event.

Also, local media are reporting that the Presidente cancelled plans for the Zona Económica Especial (ZEE) that was scheduled to be built in La Unión, the municipio where Troncones is. The Chinese had shown a strong interest in locating plants there that would not be subject to the normal regulations and taxes. Personally I never liked the idea, and I like the idea even less of shady politicians making deals with the Chinese. Western economies need to stop embracing low-priced Chinese goods until we are at least all playing the game on the same even ground. Of course, this puts pressure on the state and federal governments to come up with other ideas to stimulate the economy and create jobs.
