Pringle wants to see YIDA agreement renegotiated, since Chinese Investor has Failed to Honour his part of the Contract

8

Since the Chinese investor has failed to perform, Opposition Leader Jamale Pringle wants the Government to revisit the arrangement it made with YIDA.

When Prime Minister Gaston Browne announced the creation of the Special Economic Zone on Guiana Island, he claimed that developer Yida Zhang would pump millions into the economy on an annual basis.

However, eight years later, the development remains stalled and there is no activity taking place on the island or its surrounding acreage.

Accordingly, Pringle says that Zhang has not fulfilled his part of the contract and, therefore, some of the concessions he received ought to be taken back.

Given that the Chinese investor has failed to perform adequately, the Opposition Leader says some degree of re-negotiation should have taken place.

He notes that Zhang can still make money on the project – although he has not satisfied the agreement – and so, in the interest of the people, the Government should be trying to get something back.

  1. Oh yes MASKses!! 😷
    Mek sure you do the negotiating. With your proven upp track record of negotiating skills.

    Exhibit A: convincing Vere Cornelius to switch to the UPP so that he can be the party candidate for that constituency…… only for King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe to have hand-picked BISHOP SEAN 🐦 BIRD.

    “Meanwhile, Leader of the Opposition, Jamale Pringle revealed that HE HAS BEEN IN TALKS WITH CORNELIUS SINCE THE LAST GENERAL ELECTIONS…”

    • That is how serious you are about our country! After the government has handed over everything that Yida demanded, your response to this treacherous act is to mock the victims. Time will surely tell.

  3. YIDA was the biggest Con to hit Antigua and at the time we did not realize that it was the opening act for the ABLP performance and comedy of cons and announcements.
    We were promised 2 billion dollars worth of investment over a 10 year period. To this day, NADA. What was in the performance clause? How many times did plans and projections for YIDA make it into the Budget Speech? This government is a joke!!! Gaston ton-a-gas and his economic powerhouse was a hoax. YIDA was a con! WISEZ was a con. Then YIDA sued WISEZ. Only in Antigua and Barbuda!

  4. Well said! Take back all the concessions and GET RID AH DEM! And while we at it, get rid of Gaston too! He endorsed YIDA, and should be fired for this and all the countless scandals he is involved in. Be fair, if anyone else had done it, it would be an indictment on them!

  5. YIDA was given permission to bring something to Antigua and that was and still is hideous destruction to the environment in the form of removing vital to all land and marine life Mangroves. He has destroyed the coastline and the aescetics of the whole area with cheap looking prefab…The “steel factory” had to be a practical joke on the politicians who attended the opening!
    We, the people paid for the highway on the land and we, the people will continue to pay in one way or another for con artist YIDA’s destruction if he is not shut down and sent packing back to wherever he came from. It really is past time for leadership in this island to stop catering to corrupt Chinese for a handout; most of whom have absolutely no concept or caring for the environment, marine life/coastal beauty/animal life or the people of Antigua and Barbuda. They are all about themselves and eventually policing and controlling and consequently destroying this tiny country to feed and enrich China!! WAKE UP ANTIGUA…Look at how the Chinese have infiltrated (with so called grants and debt trap loans) and are destroying other islands and not least of all Africa.

    • Pringle shut the hell up. Go tell Harold to move and give you your rightful position. Then you can talk.
