Advisor sought for new Chittagong terminal
The Port of Chittagong in 2015
Bangladesh’s Public Private Partnership (PPP) Authority has opened applications for a legal advisor for the planned development of a new terminal for the Port of Chittagong.
In Terms of Reference for the position available on the organisation’s website, the authority said that the successful candidate would provide legal review for the project, support during the transaction stage of the process and support for PPP Model Documentations and Templates for the venture.
Those interested in the position must submit an application with a detailed CV including documentary evidence and a recent photograph, as well as providing a financial proposal in a separate sealed envelope.
In the Terms of Reference, the PPP Authority said that high levels of business at the Port of Chittagong and the Port of Mongla, as well as the fact that the Port of Chittagong handles over 90% of Bangladesh’s total seaborne trade, have resulted in ship congestion and impacted upon the Port of Chittagong’s performance.
The Chittagong Port Authority therefore plans to construct another terminal at Laldia Char, with the proposed site situated less than 10 kilometres from the upper Port of Chittagong facilities near Chittagong’s Shah Amanat International Airport.
The new terminal will be equipped with two berths for the handling of containers from geared ships as well as two berths for the handling of dry bulk and breakbulk general cargo.
Those wishing to submit an EOI for the position of legal advisor must do so by September 20.
