Martinique will be embarking on a project to renovate the French department’s Aime Cesaire International Airport.
Serge Letchimy, president of Martinique’s Regional Council, signed the agreement on Monday with Frantz Thodiard and Manuel Baudouin, the CEO and chairman of the supervisory board of the airport, respectively.
The agreement was born of a “shared ambition” to “enhance the attractiveness of our territory,” Letchimy said in a statement following the signing.
The renovations will cover what both sides called “tourism development” at the airport.
Martinique’s regional government will be funding about 47 percent of the project, for a total investment of about $7.1 million.
