The Government of Jeanine Áñez has awarded new contracts to workshops for the conversion of vehicles to CNG, maintenance of equipment, requalification and replacement of CNG cylinders in the department of Tarija. The contracts will support the sustainability of the policy of changing the energy matrix to natural gas, enabling the economic reactivation of the sector with the consequent generation of jobs.
Áñez highlighted the creation of jobs with this type of initiative and guaranteed that her management policies will be focused on improving the economy of citizens, a demand that exists throughout the country. “We are talking about more than 120 new jobs, related to the workshops that do the requalification and maintenance of the cylinders and, in these times, this is great news. It is of great help for many families,” she said.
In June, the Ministry of Hydrocarbons, through the Executing Entity for Conversion to Natural Gas Vehicles (EEC-GNV), presented the Incentive Program for the Development and Sustainability of the Energy Matrix in the Transportation Sector, an initiative that establishes the creation of a trust fund destined to grant credits to the transportation sector that uses natural gas.
“The resources are already available so that the workshops with which the corresponding contracts are being signed can function. And the economy of transport and many collateral actors in this program can now be energized. It is good news, it is good news for everyone’s economy,” added the Minister of Hydrocarbons Víctor Hugo Zamora.
