Developments in Region Three “long in coming”- DG Harmon

DPI, Guyana, Thursday, February 27, 2020

The Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GLSC) has officially opened a new $36Million regional sub-office at Crane, West Coast Demerara.

Director-General of the Ministry of the Presidency Joseph Harmon was present at Thursday’s ceremony and noted that the GLSC was responding to His Excellency President David Granger’s vision for effective land management services and facilities countrywide.

“The developments that we are seeing in Region 3 are developments that are long in coming. We have been improving steadily in the services we provide to the people of Region 3,” he said.

CEO Trevor Benn stated that he has been working to restore the Commission to its rightful place since taking up his post there three years ago.

“This is only the beginning of what is to come from the Commission. We are committed to ensuring that our services are deployed efficiently and transparently. In addition to the new buildings we are constructing, we are working to ensure that our facilities, equipment, and materials used are at a standard that can give our clients a better service.”

Regional Information Officer Ganesh Mahipaul, who represented the REO at the event, said that the positive developmental impact the Coalition Government had made in the region was undeniable.

“I can boast of a brand-new office for our education department, many schools that were constructed, the rehabilitation of health centres, the upgrade of the Leonora Cottage Hospital. Soon we will be commissioning a new maternity ward that will cater to people of the riverine communities. We no longer have wooden bridges; we have reinforced concrete structures. That is improvement,” he declared.
