Member of the Joint Consultative Committee on the Construction Sector (JCCCS), Stewart Paris, has made clear the position of the committee as it relates to foreign companies being awarded contracts here.
Paris says the organization does not have any problems with foreigners being awarded contracts here however, he calls for equal opportunities for local contractors.
His statement comes after Government allegedly signed an untendered $18.2 million contract with NSG Management and Technical Services Ltd of Barbados, for construction of the Roseau West Bridge project.
Paris said, "We have absolutely no problems with foreign companies doing contracts on the island of Dominica .... We believe that locally, we have the capacity to do that same kind of work, and all we're asking for is to be given an equal opportunity to tender for such projects...".
