Freezone’s stakeholders and Board of management meet to discuss extra fees

FREE ZONE UP

A handful of stakeholders of the Benque Viejo Del Carmen Free zone were protesting on Monday because of an increase of fees by the Free zone’s Board. One of the operators reportedly locked the gate, blocking entrance from everyone.

A handful of stakeholders of the Benque Viejo Del Carmen Free zone were protesting on Monday because of an increase of fees by the Free zone’s Board. One of the operators reportedly locked the gate, blocking entrance from everyone. Today, the CEO of the Free zone, Benedict Palacio, told us the operators and the board are now in discussion to resolve the matter.

Benedict Palacio, CEO, Benque Freezone: “At the Freezone that day one of the importers with his workers had blocked the entrance to the Freezone area. He was protesting against paying a development charge that was proposed in a notice sent out to them a month ago. There were others that were involved but one of the main importers was responsible for blocking the gate. The police got here, cooler heads prevailed, I went there and spoke to them and I told them that this is not the way to do business, that if they were aggrieved by something then they needed to come to the table and speak about it. They made their proposal and the board is looking at it and reviewing it and see where we go from there, they will have to make their counter proposal. They have to negotiate, the board was working on it and they will try to respond in a timely manner because they want it to be resolved also.”

We will bring you the board’s response when it becomes available.
