DPI, Guyana, Sunday, October 27, 2019

The Coalition Government remains the “best answer” for the continued development of Guyana. This was expressed today by Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Hon. Sydney Allicock.

The minister was in the company of First Lady, Her Excellency, Sandra Granger and Minister of Social Protection, Hon. Amna Ally, who distributed a quantity of sport gear and other items to the youth and women groups in the Region 8 village of Paramakatoi.

He said the government is aware of the importance of giving support to the women and youths of this nation.

“For the last four years, we have been trying our utmost to bring relief, to bring opportunities and that partnership that is badly needed in this country to build economies and work towards the Green State Development Strategy [GSDS], through a green economy leading on to a good life,” he said. 

He told residents to “look at us as your partners in development.”

“We believe that the government is the best answer for your development and the country as a whole and to give everyone the best opportunity. Better days are ahead. We are already seeing that opportunities for everyone to be involved in their community and homes.”

The First Lady’s passion for the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) was brought to the fore during the meeting. She said soon enough, the village’s internet connectivity will become a reality and youths in the community will get a push start in STEM.

“Wherever we have gone, we found that children are very excited about it and are engaged. So, I hope that in the not too distant future, I hope that I can come back with some trainers to do some robotics camp for the school children.”

Minister Ally reminded residents of the Coalition Government’s policy of bridging the gap between the coastland and hinterland and providing the much-needed support and development in every part of Guyana.
