Opposition parties want to break monopoly position CPS
WILLEMSTAD – Yesterday was an important day in parliament when the MPs debated on the future of the ports in Curaçao. The debate was after the Minister of Economic Development, Stanley Palm presented the document titled Port Policy 2013-2022.
The parliamentary meeting was requested by opposition parties MFK and MAN because they find it odd that the port policy was presented to the MPs with any consultation or explanation beforehand.
The focus of the MPs of the opposition parties was about breaking the monopoly of Curaçao Port Services (CPS) including the exploitation of containers.
However, according to Palm, there is, since December 2014, a draft agreement on the table between Curaçao Port Services (CPS) and Curacao Port Authority (CPA), which seems to bring an end to this monopoly.
