PAR wants further coordination with coalition partners on port concession

ZitaWILLEMSTAD - The PAR faction in parliament wants to urgently discuss with its coalition partners the draft port concession between the Curaçao Port Services (CPS) and the Curaçao Port Authority (CPA).

This is according to the PAR party leader and MP, Zita Jesus-Leito after the statements by the Curaçao Business Association (VBC) to the MPs in the Standing Committee Economic Development.

According to Jesus-Leito this is because of the new situation in the negotiations.

The PAR MP did not want to go into details about the issues, but the VBC has been very critical of the extreme form of monopoly of the CPS, which has been prevailing for years. The business association has also indicated why a future concession with just the stevedoring company CPS is not desirable. The VBC pleaded with the MPs not to extend the concession with twenty years for CPS.
