Lawmaker: P3 plan for cruise piers looks to be on the rocks
By John McPhaul
Rep. Ángel Matos on Wednesday characterized insistence on the privatization of the cruise ship piers in San Juan as a failure, given the change in attitude of Global Port Holdings, the company the Puerto Rico government is in talks with to improve and manage the piers.
“This pandemic has demonstrated the true intentions of the Ports Authority and the privatization company,” Matos said in a written statement. “It was enough for 90 days of temporary closure and the alleged $300 million and construction plans disappeared.”
