Rather the signing was done in Guyana in the Ministry of Works.CHEC, under heavy scrutiny by Guyana and Jamaica for two major multi-million-dollar contracts and a string of media reports of bribery, decided to meet with the local media to answer all questions pertaining to the project.Accompanying Zhongdong Tang, the CHEC’s Regional Director; to the press conference were Colvin Heath-London, Senior Business Manager; Jennifer Armond,Wholesale China NFL Jerseys, Communications Manager, and Huntley Medley, Communications Consultant.The Chinese company insisted that it is in the business of finding projects to invest in and had approached government in early 2011 to rebuild CJIA.

In all, the process took around nine months from start to finish for CHEC to seal the deal.In September, last, the company claimed, China held a major economic forum in Trinidad establishing a US$1B fund to help develop the Caribbean. It was this fund that Guyana sought for the project.In November, days before the end of the two-term limit of former President Bharrat Jagdeo, a US$138M contract was signed between CHEC and the Government of Guyana.

Instead, according to Tang,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, “this matter, which is still in court in China, is not directly related to CHEC.
