Deadline Extended for Agriculture Ministry’s Public Private Partnerships – Expression of Interests (EOIs)  

8 November, 2021

Deadline Extended for Agriculture Ministry’s Public Private Partnerships – Expression of Interests (EOIs)  

Strategic partners desirous of entering Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) with the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries (MALF), have until Friday 12th November, 2021 at 2.00pm to submit their applications with respect to the advertised Expression of Interests (EOIs) for both La Gloria in New Grant and the National Seed Bank (NSB) in Chaguaramas respectively.

 

About the EOIs: The Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (GORTT) through the MALF, has decided to undertake the PPPs in order to support: the transformation and development of State land at La Gloria in New Grant and the ongoing transformation and modernisation of the National Seed Bank in Chaguaramas.

In relation to the State land at La Gloria (see https://bit.ly/3FzB8YP), the GORTT has issued an invitation to potential investors, including new and existing farmers with significant experience and technical/financial capacity  for the lease of the entire or appropriate sections of the seven hundred and ninety (790) acres, for all or any of the following activities: livestock, mixed use or any other commercial use related to agriculture, particularly pineapple and tree crops. To this end, interested persons/entities are asked to provide a proposal for the lease of the entire acreage or portions of the acreage with a minimum of one hundred (100) acres.

With respect to the National Seed Bank (NSB) (see https://bit.ly/3BsAr1h), the GORTT has issued an invitation to potential investors with significant experience and technical capacity for the development and operation of a modern nursery and plant propagation facility using an appropriate portion of the existing land and infrastructure at the NSB. It should be noted that this public private partnership arrangement will in no way impact the current operations at the NSB, but is primarily intended to widen the product offerings in that geographic region and provide training opportunities for young persons selected by the Ministry of Youth Development and National Service (MYDNS).

The original deadline for submission of applications was Friday 29th October, 2021.

For further information on these Public Private Partnerships (PPP) please visit the MALF website at agriculture.gov.tt
