Paraguay's public works and communications ministry (MOPC) will submit a bill to congress this month to concession capital Asuncion's Silvio Pettirossi airport, public works and transport minister Efrain Alegre told BNamericas.
The government is currently completing a draft of the bill, which also includes another two potential airport concessions, the minister said.
MOPC and the International Financing Corporation (IFC) signed a technical advisory agreement on September 1, through which the latter will carry out the technical studies for the airport concession.
The studies will allow IFC to diagnose the airport's current situation and analyze its technical, commercial, environmental, financial and legal aspects.
The entity will also suggest a number of alternatives to concession the airport and will draw up the bidding rules and concession contract, BNamericas reported previously.
In August, MOPC signed an agreement with the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), which provided a US$391,000 grant for technical assistance with airport concession projects.
