White also announced that the 7% discount offer will be extended to staff of the Central Housing and Planning Authority and to the contractors responsible for works at the Ministry of Housing.

The release reported White as saying that at the end of a year the agreement will be re-examined and reviewed.

Ali is quoted in the release as saying “I am happy once again to be associated with another activity that embraces the Central Housing and Planning Authority’s  …focus on development through partnership. We are embracing this approach towards seeking the best prices and housing solutions especially for low income earners”. He expressed gratitude to Harris Paints.
