The technical and economic offers will be received on October 17 at the offices of the Pro-Pedernales Trust, with the purpose of signing the contract after November of this year.
The funds to finance the cost of the contracting come from the trust patrimony of the Pro-Pedernales Trust, created by Decree 724-20 of December 22, 2020.
The General Directorate of Public-Private Alliances informed Diario Libre that all the land and infrastructure being built in the Cabo Rojo project are property of the Pro-Pedernales Trust, and the hoteliers will only be operators. The trust is now managed with State capital, but it is foreseen that it will receive private investment for the major works.
