The young professional affiliate of the Opposition Jamaica Labour Party, Generation 2000, is calling on Prime Minister Simpson-Miller to remove the logistics hub project from Industry Minister, Anthony Hylton.

G2K Vice President, Stephen Edwards, says the Prime Minister should take charge of the project.

In March this year, the Investment and Industry Minister announced what he described as a more than 5-billion-US-dollar investment by the Krauck Group and Anchor Finance.

But on Tuesday he appeared to be distancing himself from the Government’s move to assess the viability of the companies’ interest in the hub.

Last month, the Government signed an MOU with Krauck and Anchor allowing for a 30-day period for the firms to provide additional information to prove their ability to undertake investments in the logistics hub.

That period expired last week Thursday.

On Monday, Cabinet is expected to make an announcement on whether the government will be proceeding with the planned investments by Krauck Systems and Anchor Finance.
