Taiwanese company wins Argyle bid

By admin on 9/15/10

A Taiwanese company has won the bid to do the main terminal at the Argyle International Airport.

Speaking yesterday, Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves said that the bidding process saw three companies presenting ideas. He added that two of the companies eventually backed out, leaving the job up to a Taiwanese company. He added that the two other companies would not have been suitable for the job citing among other things the lack of a base in or close to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The PM said that having a Taiwanese company do the main terminal is a plus because among other things, we have diplomatic relations with Taiwan.

“There are negotiations with them at the moment as we would love to have a Taiwanese company do it because the money is coming from Taiwan”, said the PM
