Jamaica Gleaner - - FRONT PAGE -

THE GOVERN­MENT, through the Min­istry of Trans­port and Min­ing, has ap­proved a new pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship ten­der for the Nor­man Man­ley In­ter­na­tional Air­port (NMIA) via a trans­par­ent, in­ter­na­tional, com­pet­i­tive ten­der process. The pre­vi­ous ten­der process, launched in De­cem­ber 2014, was ter­mi­nated. A me­dia re­lease yes­ter­day noted that the Govern­ment “is com­mit­ted to part­ner­ing with an ex­pe­ri­enced pri­vate-sec­tor in­vestor with proven ex­pe­ri­ence in the avi­a­tion sec­tor to op­er­ate, fi­nance, de­velop and main­tain the NMIA un­der a long-term con­ces­sion agree­ment.”

An in­vi­ta­tion for pre­qual­i­fi­ca­tion ap­pli­ca­tions is ex­pected to be launched by early De­cem­ber 2016.

The re­lease noted that the pro­ject will be pre­sented at the Global Air­port Devel­op­ment (GAD) con­fer­ence in Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal, on Novem­ber 30, 2016. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Govern­ment and the trans­ac­tion team will be avail­able for in­di­vid­ual meet­ings with in­vestors at the GAD con­fer­ence.

Any party in­ter­ested in a meet­ing to fur­ther dis­cuss this in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity is wel­come to ar­range a meet­ing ses­sion by con­tact­ing Denise Gal­limore of the Devel­op­ment Bank of Ja­maica at dgal­limore@dbankjm.com.

Any ques­tions or clar­i­fi­ca­tion re­quests on the pro­ject should be ad­dressed to dgal­limore@ dbankjm.com, with a copy to mottey@ifc.org and ddavis2@ifc.org.
