Concept port concession adopted
WILLEMSTAD - The concept of port concession will be adopted today by parliaemnt. That is the outcome of the public meeting of parliament yesterday.
Whether that would happen was just as exciting: Pueblo Soberano was initially against it because they first wanted to see the financial statements of Curaçao Ports Services (CPS).
The draft agreement will put an end to the monopoly of CPS. The concept also indicates that the CPS will have to invest 50 million guilders in the renewal of the dock and two new harbor cranes.
The preliminary port concession will be in force for 20 years . After the agreement Curaçao Ports Authorithy will return to the negotiating table with CPS.
