The tender for the construction of the terminal building of Mexico City's new international airport has drawn strong interest from international firms.
The minutes from the tender's first clarification meeting show 27 companies interested in the project and they asked a record 1,467 questions to GACM, the airport's future operator, according to local daily El Economista.
The following foreign companies asked the most questions: Dragados (163), Siemens (95) and Motorola (71). GE, Cisco and Schneider Electric were also among the international firms that participated in the meeting and filed questions.
Debt-ridden local company ICA asked by far the most questions of all with 583, while fellow Mexican firm Cicsa put forward 92 questions, according to the report.
The tender for the construction of the terminal building was launched last month and the results will be announced on December 7, eight weeks before it was originally planned. The reception of economic and technical bids is set for November 7.
