A new national logistics base in Cordoba for Spanish Military

A new general protocol of action and agreement for the Ministry of Defence’s new national logistics base for the Spanish military in Cordoba will be signed tomorrow. It will be located on 85 hectares plot of land in the La Rinconada area.

Mayor of Cordoba Jose Maria Bellido, president of the Junta de Andalucia Juanma Moreno and Spain’s Minister of Defence Maria Robles will all be present at the signing.

Mayor Bellido previously stated: “In January, there was nothing, almost nobody knew in Cordoba that there was a project for the Army’s logistics base for all of Spain, and in September the protocol and urban agreement will be signed. I hope all the projects in the city will keep pace with this one, and follow this rhythm, so that soon there may be earthworks starting in La Rinconada”.

Cordoba City Coundil declared: “The construction and start-up of the future ‘General Javier Varela’ Army logistics base will bring an important economic and social boost, both in its construction and implementation phase, as well as in its operational phase, and the project is expected to contribute to the creation of highly qualified direct and indirect jobs”.

President of the Urban Planning Department Salvador Fuentes said: “I recognize the effort made by the three administrations, together with the private initiative, to carry out this agreement. Until Friday last week the details of it were being finalised by the Ministry of Defense and the Junta de Andalucia”.

Mr Fuentes also applauded, “the work and tremendous effort of the last days of the municipal legal services, GMU and Municipal Intervention, to make the final text of this agreement possible”, as reported by moncloa.com.
