Enterprise team to submit report on lack of bids for NMIA by month end
by Patrice Walters
Transport Minister, Dr. Omar Davies, says he expects to get a report at the end of this month, outlining the reasons for the lack of bids, for the privatisation of the Norman Manley International Airport, in Kingston.
Speaking in Parliament this afternoon (January 12) Dr. Davies explained that in April last year, 5 international companies were short listed, to participate in the bidding process, to select a concessionaire, to develop and operate the airport.
However, at the close of the bidding process last December, no bid was received.
Concern was then raised by the Opposition JLP, as to why there was no bid.
Dr. Davies says, in light of the concerns, he has asked the enterprise team, to carry-out an assessment of the bidding process.
