PRIVATIZING HAINA PORT?

The government may have granted the rights to Haina Port to a company known as Compania HIT, reports Listin Diario (April 20, 2001). The company will provide the basic services at the port from the docking of ships, loading and unloading of cargo, dredging and other operations. Today, 80% of the cargo shipped to the DR enters by way of Haina Port. Both Angel Garcia Berroa, president of the board of directors of the Dominican Port Authority, and Anibal Garcia Duvergi, executive director of the port authority, said they could not confirm the agreement yet. Garcia said that a tender was not held because the shipping companies that promote the project have earned the special treatment. He announced that the Port Authority is also studying other concessions for the ports of Azua, San Pedro and the Santo Domingo tourist port. Listin Diario published the complaint of Nassim Alemany, president of the Dominican Association of Industries, who sits on the Port Authority board. He says he was not invited to the meeting in which the HIT proposal was presented, and that it would have been better to privatize the port in a transparent way by international and national tender.
