This project is one of several elements comprising the Government’s Logistics Hub initiative.
Development of the proposed trans-shipment and logistics hub is being undertaken by the Government in a bid to position Jamaica to take advantage of opportunities expected to result from the expansion of the Panama Canal, by 2015.
Speaking at a press conference yesterday, Hylton said tenders were invited for the development, and the bids, which were received are now being evaluated.
The zone will operate as a multi-use facility catering to the ICT, manufacturing and agro-processing sectors.
