Smile Grand Cayman to Finally Build Cruise Piers

From the CM News page - my questions is; it is June why Mr. PM will it take until November to sign the contracts. "Is this how government really works?"

Grand Cayman to Finally Build Cruise Piers
BusinessWeek online is reporting that the prime minister of the Cayman Islands has signed an agreement with a Chinese developer that has pledged to finance and build a cruise ship port in the capital of George Town.
State-owned China Harbour Engineering Co. also will build a cruise ship pier at a nearby turtle farm as well as renovate and expand a jetty at a popular beach, according to a government statement released late Wednesday.
Prime Minister McKeeva Bush said he expects to sign a contract by November, adding that the Chinese company will finance and design all three projects. The government has not said how much the projects will cost.
China Harbour Engineering Co. also is working on a $400 million project to renovate roads in Jamaica.

This is most likely, one of the most missed ports, it will be so nice to have a pier and dock here. Now, I wonder, when will the pier be started and finished??

Can't come soon enough.....once, we docked on thge other side of the island due to the seas. As we tendered back, we hit a reef, bigtime. I thought they would bring us back to the dock, to get on another. Nope, we made it to the ship, and, when the tender was back in place, it leaked water for days, and, the tear was a big one.

Trip, with her book & tea!
