The government hopes to award a raft of public-private partnership infrastructure concessions through 2021, as it backs reforms to help speed up investment projects.
The government granted a 30-year concession for Turbo port in Antioquia to Pisisi, which will now build a multipurpose terminal.
The creation of a new company represents a partial split of Infraero.
Invepar, controller of the concession, has already appealed against the decision.
The Mexican president's remarks come amidst news that a majority of the bondholders who invested in the project have accepted an offer by the new government to buy back up to US$1.8bn of the bonds.
