The Government of Jamaica (GOJ), through the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing (MTWH) has initiated the process of identifying a private sector operator with proven experience in the aviation sector to operate, finance, develop and maintain the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) under a long term concession agreement.
IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, has been appointed by the GOJ as Lead Advisor on the structuring and implementation of the Project. The Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ), the GOJ's Privatization Agency and PPP Unit are co-advisors and Secretariat for the transaction.
