Antigua and Barbuda’s port, Eastern Caribbean transshipment hub

Antigua and Barbuda’s port, Eastern Caribbean transshipment hub

Georgetown, Dec 13 (Prensa Latina) Antigua and Barbuda's redeveloped Deep Water Harbour port will help the country to become an Eastern Caribbean transshipment hub, CARICOM Today reported in this capital.

It is the only container terminal in the region, allowing it to provide services to neighboring nations, Prime Minister Gaston Browne said at the reopening ceremony of the port, the newspaper added.

The China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation redeveloped the port for 90 million dollars. Works began in 2018 but were plagued by delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The port currently features a brand-new cruise berth, cargo and logistics facilities, and other amenities, including offices to house Customs and Excise and the Plant Protection and Immigration Unit to prevent customers from having to travel to and from the capital.

At the reopening ceremony, Port Authority Executive Director Darwin Telemaque described the port’s completion as a “momentous journey,” adding that the facility had “all the ingredients for a bright future.”
