ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Mission Description The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service (CS) is organizing an executive-led trade mission to the Port of Veracruz, Mexico, for December 6–9, 2010. This mission is intended to include representatives of a variety of U.S. industry and service providers, particularly those in the transportation, security, and infrastructure industries. The mission will introduce mission participants to end-users and prospective partners whose needs and capabilities are targeted to the respective U.S. participant’s strengths. Participating in an official U.S. industry delegation, rather than traveling to the Port of Veracruz independently, will enhance the companies’ ability to secure meetings with the port authorities and the private terminal operators, and 2 See letter from Petitioners, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation on Certain Aluminum Extrusions From China: Requests To Postpone The Preliminary Determination And To Extend The Deadlines For Comments On Surrogate Country Selection And Surrogate Factor Valuation,’’ August 4, 2010. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51243 provide an opportunity to them to tour the port facilities. The mission will include meetings with Port of Veracruz operators, industry groups, and local companies in Veracruz interested in partnering with U.S. companies. Commercial Setting The Port of Veracruz is undergoing an expansion project to increase its efficiency and productivity. The project will take about 15–20 years to be completed, and will require investments of over US $1.2 billion. This includes the construction of new port facilities in the Vergara Bay, just next to the current port location. This project was listed as a strategic priority in the National Infrastructure Program announced by President Calderon in July 2007. In the last 2–3 years, the Port of Veracruz has invested in modifying the current facilities to expand general cargo and container capacity, and to increase efficiency in all port activities, including new facilities for customs and modern gamma ray inspection and detection equipment, security and surveillance systems, expanding berths, building a 13-kilometer bypass for the City of Veracruz, improving railroad access, improving intra-port transit roads and remodeling the administration building. At the same time, private operators have invested in modern equipment and IT systems for their facilities. The Port of Veracruz Integral Administration (APIVER) recently inaugurated an industrial and logistical area of 307 hectares, located 2.5 kilometers north of the port’s precinct. About 173 hectares will be dedicated to building nine logistics centers for containers, agricultural and bulk minerals, general cargo, intermodal transfer, an automotive logistics center, and related services. This facility has an estimated cost of US $600 million. Other ongoing or upcoming projects included in the port expansion include: —Building new yards and wharfs for containers, automotive products and grains; —Building a new wharf for tourist use; —Modernizing the surrounding infrastructure including roads, rail, electrical, hydraulic, and sanitary systems, and IT and telecommunications systems; —Increasing the capacity and efficiency of the port itself through renovated drainage, electrical, and water systems; —Increasing vehicle handling capacity; —Developing a new container terminal for post-Panama ships; E:\FR\FM\19AUN1.SGM 19AUN1
