The Ports Authority Seeing Some Movement In Two Areas

Providenciales- The Ports Authority seeing some movement in two areas… one, the cost of importing goods to the Turks and Caicos to increase; this from Cabinet which this week agreed to sanction, retroactively a 2.54% increase in stevedoring fees. Acting Governor Anya Williams, who chaired Cabinet was asked to approve changes to make the hike to load and unload ships at the docks more expensive; that change taking effect September 1st which was last week Monday.

And secondly, some positivity on a request to introduce scanners at the docks. It was a proposal by the Ports Authority to improve security of containers coming in and going out; Cabinet likes the idea of scanning and a subsequent presentation is expected.
