DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Minister of State, Hon. Dawn Hastings-Williams has reiterated that there is no uncertainty that Guyana is on a path to “massive success” with the Coalition Government at its helm.

The minister was at the time being interviewed on the Voice of Guyana’s radio programme ‘INSIGHT’ on Wednesday; where she highlighted, among other things, government’s major investment in the Infrastructure, Health, Education and the Indigenous People’s Affairs sectors.

She said while the majority of the populace are satisfied with the level of progress, they have witnessed in a mere four years, the government still believes that much more needs to be done, and this is just the beginning of favourable results.

According to the State Minister, with the establishment of the new oil and gas industry come 2020, the transformation to the “good life” will continue.

Speaking specifically about the hinterland communities, Minister Hastings-Williams pointed out that billions of dollars were invested towards making the lives of Indigenous peoples more comfortable, especially the youths.

“We are working assiduously to develop the whole of Guyana and development is rapidly taking place in our hinterlands. Young people are now involved in activities that they never thought that they would have been a part of… For example, they are involved in the First Lady’s robotic course – building robots, opening small businesses and so many other opportunities,” she stated.

Further attesting to the government’s efforts thus far, the Minister of State reminded of the many successful outreach programmes that were embarked on by the government– reaching the citizens at the grassroots level to listen to their concerns. She said come this weekend another exercise will be held as a high-level ministerial team is equipped and prepared to travel into the Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo Region.

“Government will be commissioning the road in Lethem this weekend… This is not the first; we have built roads all over Guyana. Additionally, people can drive from the Potaro-Siparuni Region of Guyana to the town of Bartica.”

She urged residents in Region 9 district to take advantage of the opportunities which await them this weekend.
