Summary: In this report a functionary of the Departmento de El Banco demands the establishment of clear limits between the state of Magdalena and the state of Santander. The functionary argues that the lack of precision concerning the borders between these states is detrimental for the fiscal interests of both provinces and for the people living in territories in dispute.
Historical Notes: The Department of Magdalena is located along the Colombian Caribbean coast on the lower Magdalena River. During the colonial period the region was known as the province of Santa Marta. Magdalena became the state of Magdalena in 1857, formed by the departments of El Banco, Padilla, Santa Marta, Tenerife, and Valledupar, and in 1886, the state of Magdalena became the Department of Magdalena. Its size was subsequently reduced when the departments of Guajira and Cesar separated from Magdalena. The state of Santander is located in eastern Colombia. It was established in 1857, and became the Department of Santander in 1886. Santander was reduced in size in 1911 when its northern portion separated to become a department on its own, the named the Department of the Norte de Santander. Davis, Robert 1993 Magdalena.
