Grupo Mexico to appeal against government’s rejection of resort airport bid
Grupo Mexico, a mining company, stated it will appeal against the government’s rejection of its bid to build an airport in the Riviera Maya tourist destination on Mexico’s Caribbean coast (Reuters/Travel Weekly, 01-Jun-2011). Grupo Mexico stated it felt “obliged” to fight the decision made by the Mexican Communications and Transport Ministry, arguing the reasons for rejection were not sound. Grupo Mexico formed one of the two bidding contorsia for the site with airport operators Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico (GAP). The ministry did not say if or when the bidding process for the USD255 million airport project could or would be relaunched.
