Government is still discussing a price for land at the Public Works site which it intends to sell to Chinese investors.
The investors are interested in constructing a hotel at the site and could get their wish when price negotiations are finalized.
“That has not been settled because the matter has not come back to the cabinet for final decisions,” said Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, in response to claims that the land at Public Works has been sold for one million dollars.
He said the ministry of lands has been discussing with the interested party the final selling price.
The site has been identified for construction of a hotel for some time now and Skerrit said other parties had previously expressed interest in the project, “that did not come through”.
