Only one company interested in management of Cabo Verde’s ports

5 February 2016

Enapor – Portos de Cabo Verde is negotiating to hand over the management of the main ports of the country on a sub-contractor basis with the only interested arty that has not given up on the international tender, Cape Verdean newspaper Expresso das Ilhas reported.

The newspaper also wrote that all the other companies that initially expressed interest had dropped out, according to information from Enapor.

On Wednesday, the Cape Verdean Official Bulletin published the government authorisation for Enapor to proceed with a sub-concession on the ports of Praia, Porto Grande, Sal-Rei and Palmeira.

The president of Enapor, Carlitos Fortes, said in October 2015 that his organisation had received expressions of interest from 11 companies in Europe and Asia, adding that more than half met the technical requirements to proceed to the second stage of the tender.

The list had interested companies based in Portugal, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Philippines, Turkey, China and Singapore. (macauhub/CV)
