Minister without portfolio in the Economic Growth and Job Creation Ministry, Dr. Horace Chang, says the government will shortly begin converting several ports in Montego Bay, St. James into a regional multi-purpose shipping facility.
Dr. Chang says the first stage of the conversion will be done at the cruise ship pier in the western resort city.
Dr. Chang pointed out that the multi-purpose port being built will also have a docking site dedicated to cargo.
Minister Chang says the decision to create the multi-purpose port in Montego Bay was made because of the city’s unique geographic location.
