Kingston Mayor at port

The outgoing chief executive officer of the Namibia Ports Authority (Namport), Bisey Uirab, reconfirmed the port authority’s intention to manage the new container terminal on reclaimed land in the port of Walvis Bay through a Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) and that the scoping for such a partnership is currently in the development stage.

The container terminal nears completion and would be commissioned in this year.
Mr Uirab made this remark recently in Walvis Bay during a courtesy visit of the mayor of the Jamaican port city of Kingston, Delroy Williams, to the port. Williams echoed Uirab’s believe that a PPP is the best way forward to optimise efficiency and growth and said Jamaica, and in particular Kingston, has been utilising PPP’s for various projects with success. In this instance, Williams invited, Namport can copy and learn from lessons learnt by the Jamaicans.
