In separate communications, the two line Ministries are requesting the Legislature’s intervention in unblocking the national fund and allow it to function. On December 12, 2016, the Legislature passed the law establishing a National Road Fund. According to the Public Works Ministry, the levy had previously been arrived at through consultation with private and public-sector stakeholders. It will also allow the MCC to match our road fund to the US$15 million as part of the Compact. This action would allow us remove the stay order and make the National Road Fund functional and viable.
