Gov’t committed to Region 10’s development
-sees Region as partner in the process
Minister within the Office of the Prime Minister, Hon. Kwame McCoy says the Government is focused on ensuring residents of Upper Demerara-Berbice (Region Ten) continue to benefit from the realisation of all of the Administration’s plans and policies.
Minister McCoy made this statement while appearing alongside Minister of Public Works, Hon. Bishop Juan Edghill on NCN’s ‘Transformation Revolution – Region #10’ on Monday evening.
“We are addressing the needs of the people in Region Ten like we are doing across the country…We are focused, and seriously so, on making sure that Region Ten benefits from the share of prosperity, and wealth and well-being, that this Government will offer to the people,” he said.
The Minister noted that while there are political elements focused on casting doubt, the Government remains committed to providing opportunities for development to the people of the Region.
“We will all work first and foremost, to make sure that we address their needs like we do for every other Guyanese and ensure that the people of Linden work with us to realise the aspirations of their dreams and the big picture that we have for this country.”
Minister McCoy also expressed confidence in the people’s ability to contribute to its transformational development.
“The people of Region Ten are concerned about where we go as a country and are committed to learn and to contribute to the way forward to the development paradigm, and to make sure that they will be part of the glory of Guyana that is prosperous, for all.
“They are also concerned about making sure that we develop in such a manner and at a fast rate that the children and the grandchildren can benefit,” he said.
Minister McCoy pointed out that after just six months in office, the PPP Government has demonstrated its commitment to honouring its promises to the region. He noted that over the last few weeks, there have been several ministerial visits and outreaches not only to Linden, but to communities across the Upper Demerara-Berbice Region.
