PRIME Minister Dr Keith Rowley yesterday announced the cancellation of the contract to construct 5,000 apartment units at specific sites across Trinidad signed by the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) with the Chinese construction and engineering company China Gezhouba Group International Engineering Co Ltd (CGGC).

“That contract was reviewed extensively by the Cabinet and it has been stopped. HDC has been instructed to go back out to tender because there were some parts of that contract that did not meet Cabinet’s acceptance and approval, both structurally and legally. That contract has been stopped,” Rowley told journalists at yesterday’s post-Cabinet news conference.
