Mitsui & Co looks to invest in Nicaragua ports infrastructure

Japanese trading giant Mitsui & Co is looking into possible investment in several ports in Nicaragua.

Talks between Mitsui, represented by Singapore-based global port solutions provider Portek, and the Central American nation’s Investment Promotion Agency (ProNicaragua), have involved possible development of logistics infrastructure at three ports.

Those ports are Corinto on Nicaragua’s northwest pacific coast, Bluefields on its south Caribbean coast and San Juan del Sur on the southwest Pacific coast.

Mitsui & Co, the second-largest trading house in Japan, is a different firm from the conglomerate Mitsui Group, which includes MOL shipping line.
