After some 15-20 years, but close to 3 in the making, the Republic of the Marshall Islands Ports Authority (RMIPA) is finally taking over the operations of our Ebeye Ports Commission (EPC) or also known as Kwajalein Atoll Ports Authority (KAPA). Big acknowledgement and credit goes to the good Lord Jesus Christ, first and foremost and then to the Kwajalein & Ebeye Traditional Leaders; Kwajalein Honorable Senators, Iroij Mike Kabua, Alvin T. Jacklick & David Paul; Hon. Mayor Hirata J. Kabua, his council members, City Manager Scott B. Paul; EPC/KAPA Board of Directors & Management (Ben J. Jacklick); RMIPA Board of Directors (current and previous) & Management (Capt. Joe Tiobech) and Carl S. Hacker from KADA and KADA Board of Directors. We would also want to acknowledge Minister of Transportation & Communication, Thomas Heine and Secretary, Phil Philippo.
