Burma Seeks Partners to Develop Mandalay Airport
18 September 2012
Burma’s government is seeking private-sector partners to upgrade Mandalay International Airport into a logistics center, according to a report by Dow Jones. The project will involve improving and expanding the airport’s terminal building and other facilities, as well as managing its passenger and cargo operations, ground-handling and catering services, and maintenance. Companies have until Oct. 15 to submit applications to pre-qualify for the tender. In July, companies were invited to help build a new airport near Rangoon. Thirty companies, including 28 from abroad, have so far responded.
