T&T gets China aid to buy port scanner
The T&T Government yesterday launched the process to acquire a linear accelerator X-Ray scanning and detection system for use by the Port Authority. The equipment has the capacity to scan 200 containers an hour. Trade Minister Vasant Bharath, along with Permanent Secretary Sandra Indar, met with Fangyuan Xu of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China and representatives of Nuctech Company Limited, the Beijing-based company engaged by the Chinese Government for the purchase of the scanner for the T&T Government.
The purchase of the scanner will be financed from the grant facility provided in the Agreement on Economic and Technical Cooperation for 2012 between the Government of the People’s Republic of China and the Government of T&T. The project is being led by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Investment with the active support of the Ministries of Transport and Finance and the Economy.
