Mexico City. President Andrés Manuel López will this Sunday lead the first test run of an interoceanic passenger train as part of the Interoceanic Corridor project in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.
The president, along with Oaxaca Governor Salomon Jara, Veracruz Governor Cuitlahuac García, and members of the Cabinet will travel on this mode of transportation, which connects the port of Salina Cruz in Oaxaca and the port of Oaxaca. A freight train line will also be built in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz state, connecting the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico and serving as a hub for industrial development.
The governor of Oaxaca and various secretaries of state spread images on social networks showing the federal executive on the train.

Those in attendance include Secretary of the Navy Jose Rafael Ojeda Duran and Sedatu Secretary Roman Mayer.
