Suriname: Officials Eye Ambitious Port Expansion

 

Suriname’s Port Authority needs an additional US$ 30 million to consolidate its leading position in the region, stated director John Defares.

The port has just finished five years of expansion and modernization costing US$ 100 million.

The additional investment will be good for the next 20 years. All we need to do is constantly see to good maintenance of our operations. We don’t have that kind of money available, but we won’t bother the government since its priorities have changed. The Port Authority should be able to earn that money,” Defares says.

The Port Authority executive says he is forced to cough up close to US$ 5 million for dredging the area near the quay as the Maritime Authority Suriname will start dredging the fairway in the Suriname River by the end of next month.
