As part of that mandate, the Board of Directors is acutely aware of the pivotal role that the Port Authority must play in the economic development of our Island and Federation as a whole. We are also very cognisant that new and innovative strategies would have to be employed to tackle and solve the serious challenges with which we are confronted, said Maynard in his first message as Board Chairman in SCASPA Sunrise - the Staff Newsletter of the St. Christopher Air & Sea Ports Authority.
The new Chairman said it will take the tireless efforts of all at the Port to ensure the realisation of its goals and each worker at the Port must play his or her role in the task of restructuring and re-organising the resources to ensure a solid foundation for the future.
