Cabinet clears major Mahdia infrastructure projects

When Cabinet met on Tuesday of this week over $1B in contracts were given its no objection in addition to the approval for the shipping out of 42 containers of scrap iron even as it examines the scrap trade.

Minister of Governance Raphael Trotman told a press conference yesterday that while approval for the shipment out of Guyana was given, it should in no way be taken to be indicative that government had given the go ahead for its continuation.

“It must be noted that this is a one-off transaction and in no way signals the resuscitation of the scrap metal trade. The implications for the resumption of the trade will be examined by a special team to be set up by cabinet,” he said.

On June 15th 2015 the Ministry of Housing had suspended the scrap metal trade pending an investigation and had ordered a forensic audit of the Scrap Metal Unit. The move was made as allegations of corruption emanated from the department with some persons bemoaning the state of the financial affairs of the unit. At the time of suspension the 42 containers of scrap metal were already on the wharf to be exported and remained there.

Government awaits the results of the audit of the unit before plans are made on the fate of the trade here.

Meanwhile Trotman also announced awards that cabinet greenlighted. These are listed below.
